The list of all papers to be presented is here, and, OMG, it's a bit much, because you can't have a symposium paper without at least one colon:

"Writing the Dreams that Lie: Bruce Springsteen and the Art of the Body Count"

"Three chords against Oppression: A Critical Inquiry into the Didactics of Springsteen"

"When They Said Sit Down, I Stood Up: Springsteen's Social Conscience, Activism, and Fan Response"

""Like a Vision She Dances": Bruce Springsteen and the Trope of the Female Salvator"

Etc.

I doubt it.

An academic conference on Mink DeVille, I'd forgive; they at least could use the exposure.
