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!

    Deadline Reminder – Call for Applications

    MusicID Digital Research Fellowship

    Deadline: 1st August 2020.

    Dear all,

    MusicID is pleased to announce its third annual Digital Research Fellowship in popular music studies.

    Awarded competitively to scholars at any phase of their careers, the fellowship is designed to support popular music research that utilizes data to draw new insights or reinforce prior understandings. The recipient will receive $1,000 and access to the Music ID platform for one year (all other applicants will receive access to the platform for six months). Special preference is given to proposals that demonstrate how they will benefit from access to the Music ID platform. The recipient is expected to write a short final report at the end of their fellowship year, describing the research they conducted and their preliminary findings.

    In order to be considered, interested applicants must send an anonymized, one-page research plan as a PDF to by August 1st 2020. The recipient will be chosen through a blind review process.

    Submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students are all encouraged and welcome. International applicants are also welcome, but all submissions must be in English. Past winning proposals may be viewed at our website, linked above.
