Abstract or Description

Theory and research into the (world) politics and (popular) culture nexus has become a growth area over the last few years. The main emphasis to date has been on visual and digital media content (TV, cinema, video, computer games, comics), with some interest in literature (hi-brow to pulp fiction) and, to a lesser extent, the contemporary arts and design (theatre, the arts, fashion). This book addresses one dimension to this thriving interest; music as a constituent factor in the audible – aural and sonic – dimensions to the popular culture and world politics nexus. This study develops themes from a book-length contribution on music at the outset of this ‘popular cultural shift’ (Franklin 2005). It delves more deeply into the aim of that volume, and interventions since then (Davies and Franklin 2015), to forge productive links between the (popular) music research, cultural studies, and the study of world politics.
