The International Association for the Study of Popular Music has a special issue out this month dealing with ‘music journalism’ which some of you may find interesting. Be sure to check out the article by Barbara Panuzzo dealing with women in hip hop.
There’s plenty in the bad catalogue to keep you occupied. It’s a free and open access journal so no nasty pay-walls!
