music / media / politics

a special issue of MEDIANZ (https://medianz.otago.ac.nz/medianz)

Popular music is one of the key cultural sites for contemporary political struggle. In the media, we see rock songs and stars harnessed by politicians in order to gain credibility with demographics and the antics of pop stars generate public discussion on issues such as gender, race, class and sexuality.

However, music is most often encountered as a part of our everyday mediated lives. These moments of banal engagement – listening to music on the train, pirating tracks at work, following musicians on twitter – are also political. Media representations of music (music videos, social media feeds, lyrics etc.), as well as the experience of ‘musicking’, reveal the machinations of the contemporary music culture industry – as well as potential spaces of negotiation and resistance by consumers and producers. We particularly encourage submissions relating to contemporary intersections between music, media and politics in Aotearoa / New Zealand and the wider Australia-Pacific region. If selected by the editors, submissions are blind peer-reviewed. Other possible areas of inquiry include

•         music and cultural publics

•         music and radical politics

•         politics of media representations in music

•         music subcultures / music scenes

•         political-economies of music and social media

•         music and the ‘blogosphere’

•         music modalities (the return of the record etc.)

•         politics of music and the ‘retro revival’
