Bruce Springsteen and Women Fans: Meaning and Connection

Professor Lorraine Mangione has co-authored a chapter, Who is Springsteen to his women fans?, in Bruce Springsteen and Popular Music – Rhetoric, Social Consciousness, and Contemporary Culture, edited by William I. Wolff and published by Routledge, 2017. This is a chapter on which Lorraine collaborated with Dr. Donna Luff, a sociologist from Children’s Hospital in Boston.

Kate Evarts, Assistant Director of Antioch’s Psychological Services Center (Psy.D., 2017, from Antioch), helped tremendously with data collection as a Research Assistant. The article highlights issues around gender, and focuses on the depth of the attachment of Springsteen fans to him and his work. It also looks at the importance of his work in their evolving lives, identity, connections, meaning-making, and sense of self. And of course fans also just have a great time at his concerts!

Lorraine was also interviewed for her work on creativity more generally, which includes clinical as well as research applications and areas, as part of a larger article on creativity in the summer issue of New England Psychologist.
