The Legacy of The Boss is Coming to Monmouth University

Bruce Springsteen and his music will bring scholars and experts together next month in West Long Branch.

“Glory Days: A Bruce Springsteen Symposium” will be more than just a fan convention. The Boss will be discussed by academics, authors, and experts.

The man behind the event is Dr. Mark Bernhard, Associate Provost for Outreach and Engagement at the University of Southern Indiana. He’s a lifelong fan who has been to 61 Springsteen concerts and says that after 40 years, The Boss is still relevant and influential. Bernhard says that unlike other musicians of his era, Bruce has managed to stay fresh by constantly evolving his sound.

Though Bernhard has worked across the country, he believes that only the Garden State can truly appreciate Bruce. Pre-and post-conference tours will explore Asbury Park, Freehold, Belmar, and other areas associated with Bruce’s rise to fame. Music is (of course) also important to the event, with performances held throughout at the Stone Pony.

The event takes place September 14th through the 16th. Registration is now open.
