Appel de conférences pour le panel « Teaching Popular Music Studies. Pedagogy and Curriculum » du Popular Music Study Group de l’American Musicological Society, Denver, 9-12 novembre 2023.
« Now, decades after the founding of popular music studies and the new musicology debates, (almost) no one questions popular music’s place in our curricula. But what exact part does popular music play in the curriculum?
At a moment where many departments are revising program requirements and course offerings with the aim to diversify and decolonize the curriculum, popular music offers its own solutions and challenges. For example: Popular music may already be an antidote to the elitism of Western classical music, but the ubiquitous “History of Rock” and “History of Jazz” classes also threaten to calcify into canonic lineages of great men. In our curricula, popular music classes (alongside world music) present the greatest diversity of musicians of color, queer artists, and working-class audiences, yet most popular music textbooks rarely go beyond the borders of the US and the UK.
How might we identify and solve such challenges? What might popular music studies learn from its own pedagogical past? What pedagogies might popular music studies learn from or teach other subdisciplines of musicology? »
