paperback    ISBN 13: 9780415978057 | ISBN 10: 041597805x

Queering the Popular Pitch is a new collection of 19 essays that situate queering within the discourse of sex and sexuality in relation to popular music. This investigation addresses the changing debates within gay, lesbian and queer discourse in relation to the dissemination of musical texts -performance, cultural production and sexual meaning - situating music within the broader patterns of culture that it both mirrors and actively reproduces.
 
The collection is divided into four parts:
 
-queering borders
 
-queer spaces
 
-hidden histories
 
-queer thoughts, mixed media.
 
Queering the Popular Pitch will appeal to students of popular music, Gay and Lesbian studies. With case studies and essays by leading popular music scholars it provides insightful discourse in a growing field of musicological research.
