Founded in 1998, the Popular Music Interest Group is dedicated to promoting the scholarly study of popular music through methods including musical analysis and theory. Our goals include:
• Ensuring academic recognition for popular music research
• Encouraging more scholars of music theory to engage popular repertoires
• Encouraging scholars of popular music to make effective use of musical analysis and theory

On our Humanities Commons site, we rely on our members to help edit this resource — this cooperation will help continually improve the presence of popular music in our classrooms and scholarship. Many thanks!

    Call For Proposals

    IASPM-US 2022 Conference: Grooves and Movements

    May 26-May 28, 2022

    Ann Arbor/Detroit Michigan

    The International Association for the Study of Popular Music-United States chapter (IASPM-US) invites proposals for its annual conference, which will take place in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan on May 26-28, 2022. We welcome abstracts for individual papers, organized panels, roundtable discussions, and alternative (non-paper) presentations on all aspects of popular music, broadly defined, from any discipline or profession. We especially encourage submissions on the many rich popular music histories of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Detroit.

    The theme for this year’s conference “Grooves and Movements” intersects with Detroit and its storied place in rhythm and blues, rock, punk, hip-hop, and electronic dance music, and is intended to connect the histories, philosophies, and practices of urban spaces to other historical and global popular music communities.

    Submission Instructions:  Please submit proposals using the link below no later than midnight (EST) October 15, 2021. Individual presentations may last up to 20 minutes with a 10-minute question and answer period. Roundtables and organized panels can be allotted up to a two-hour time slot. Abstracts not adhering to the word count will not be considered.

    For more information about the conference, including featured events, membership requirements, and detailed submission procedures please visit the full Call for Proposals at https://iaspm-us.net/2022-cfp/
