Imagining America – IASPM 2013 Video Teaser

This weekend I adventured into the wild world of popular music studies for three days of panels and presentations at the 2013 International Association for the Study of Popular Music USA Conference at the University of Texas at Austin, March 1-3rd. In this video I asked the panelists of “Imagining America,” Friday morning, March 1st, what their presentations say about US musical identity, and why the study of popular music is important. More extensive coverage is coming soon!
