The High Priest of Rock and Roll: The Reception of Elvis Presley in Denmark, 1956-1960

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Through early Danish receptions of Presley we may draw the contours of what he and rock and roll music signified to mainstream public opinion at a transnational level: a unique discursive condensation of challenges to deep-seated class, race, and gender lines in dominant conceptions of civilization, along with transgressions of the boundaries between proper speech and mere noise, reason and affect, music as a pure listening experience, and music as a bodily experience. Yet, within a few years he was effectively integrated into readjusted conceptions of mainstream popular culture.
