We’re all back to school! And what a warm reception we’ve had from the amazing fan community. Who knew Michael Jackson Studies would be such a hit! On this day in 1996, Michael Jackson’s HIStory tour began in Bucharest.
In celebration of this fact today we are publishing not one… not two… but three amazing HIStory-focused publications for you. The first is a brand new academic online video course by Karin Merx, editor of The Journal of Michael Jackson Studies.
Rediscover HIStory and expand your knowledge of Michael Jackson’s Past, Present and Future: Book I…
The second is our new episode of Michael Jackson’s Dream Lives On: An Academic Conversation, which is all about Michael Jackson’s 1995 album.
This fourteenth episode is about Michael Jackson’s HIStory album. On the 7th September in 1996 Jackson started his HIStory World Tour in Bucharest. Karin and Elizabeth’s conversation explores the many ways in which Michael Jackson was aware of, knowledgeable about, and concerned with the subject of history, and how he used this in his work. They discuss the teaser trailer, various tracks, and the problematic nature of the way we think about history, as well as the song, Little Susie, and Elizabeth’s upcoming book, The Dangerous Philosophies of Michael Jackson: His Music, His Persona, and His Artistic Afterlife.
I am super-excited about the third and final piece of HIStory that drops on the Journal this evening at 6pm GMT.
Happy (Historical) Listening,
Elizabeth – ElizabethAmisu.com
