Studies of the relations between popular music and place offer rich conceptual and empirical terrain. This interdisciplinary book series publishes research on popular music and its spatial relations by scholars working in the wider disciplines and subject fields of popular music studies, cultural geography, cultural studies, sociology, urban studies, youth studies, leisure studies, and beyond.
Titles in the series focus not only on specific cities, but also rural and suburban places, alternative or marginal spaces, online spaces, and other music geographies. The series invites work by scholars interested in political and cultural intersections of popular music and place with issues of cultural identities, globalization, migration, belonging and exclusion, or histories and cultural heritage. In turn, the book series offers a critical space for scholars to theorise about the changing place of popular music where it is encountered, enjoyed, and contested.
Proposals are warmly invited for the series; please contact Alison Welsby or one of the series editors with a Proposal Submission Form.
