“Popular Communication: International Journal of Media and Culture

Special Issue: Music and Discovery

Co-editors: Tom McCourt and Nabeel Zuberi

The editors of Popular Communication: The International Journal of Media
and Culture invite submissions for a special issue on the topic of Music
and Discovery. We are aiming for a multi-disciplinary issue that draws
on the many resonances of the word ‘discovery’ in music as popular
communication, and we welcome critical approaches in music education;
musicology and ethnomusicology; film, television and cultural studies;
media and communication studies; sound studies; popular music studies
and other fields. We seek manuscripts that examine the politics and
aesthetics of musical discovery, and how the tropes of discovery are
invoked in disciplines, research methods and the production of knowledge
related to music. How is ‘discovery’ represented in musical production
and sounds, in the uses and social meaning of music?

Experimentation and changes in music making are often understood through
the language of discovery. Musical sounds and images embody and
represent discovery in their textuality and intertextuality, from
citation to product placement. Digital convergence and ubiquitous music
raise questions about the interaction of distinctive media industries
and technologies, as well as the modes of attention and play of senses
involved in discovery. Social media and networks offer new ways of
finding and sharing music, as well as new recordings, repertoires and
performances. ‘Discovery’ has long been organized in retail and leisure
spaces; today, ‘discovery’ often appears in discussions of digital
platforms and algorithms that introduce unfamiliar music to listeners,
who are then tagged and tracked as consumers.

The humanities, sciences and educational institutions devoted to music
deploy the language of discovery in their rhetoric. The collecting and
curatorial practices of institutions and tastemakers, amateur and
professional, introduce us to archives and genealogies that may reaffirm
or contest dominant music histories.  Enlightenment reason, colonialism,
imperialism and tourism continue to inform the discovery of musical
worlds, and affect the ways in which the objects and subjects of
discovery struggle for and negotiate agency. ‘Discovery’ mobilises
desires and affective forces that are gendered, sexualized and
racialized.  We welcome manuscripts on the theme of Music and Discovery
in these areas of research, and others that we may have overlooked or
have yet to speculate upon.

Submitted papers should be 6,000 words in length (inclusive of all
elements). The deadline for submission is March 1, 2015. Tom McCourt
(mccourt@fordham.edu) and Nabeel Zuberi (n.zuberi@auckland.ac.nz)
welcome email queries before this date.  Instructions for submitting
your article can be found at

be sent out for review if deemed inappropriate for the journal.
