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!

    Hi Christine, I just thought I’d mention that it’s not obvious which “way” the numbers are supposed to be ranked. I assumed #1 was top priority and #4 was lowest but someone else may have interpreted this differently! You may wish to reply here to clarify or include that note in the instructions themselves.
