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!
