Sociology of Music Thematic Group

Aims and Objectives

Year established: July 2023.

This thematic group aims to advance the sociological study of music and musical cultures. While modern popular music studies has its roots alongside cultural studies, sociological studies of music have served as core texts since the establishment of this interdisciplinary field. Further, older disciplines such as ethnomusicology offer some of the earliest research on the sociology of music, and as musical cultures are always deeply social in context, sociology is a primary vehicle through which to investigate and explore them. More specific than Cultural Sociology, the Sociology of Music is concerned with the structures, practices, and motivations for music-making, production and consumption, and the role of music in society.
