Vol. 4 No. 2 (2014): Music Journalism
The area of music journalism is as varied as the music and scenes it represents, and we hope that this issue of IASPM Journal –– with contributions by Thomas Conner, Steve Jones, Jacopo Tomatis, Barbara Panuzzo, Josep Pedro and Simon Morrison –– will stimulate further research at the intersection of journalism and popular music studies. In addition to the five articles on music journalism, this issue of the journal shows examples of the breadth of IASPM research, including a research article by David Cashman on the touristic musicscape of a cruise ship and an Italian-language contribution by Carlo Bianchi on Vladimir Vysotsky’s poetics in relation to Soviet society in Italy, plus five book reviews from the field of popular music studies.
