The International Association for the Study of Popular Music-United States chapter (IASPM-US) invites proposals for its annual conference, which will take place in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan on May 21–23, 2020. IASPM-US welcomes abstracts on all aspects of popular music, broadly defined, from any discipline or profession, and especially encourages submissions on the many rich popular music histories of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Detroit.

The theme for this year’s conference is “BPM: Bodies, Places, Movements,” which intersects with Detroit and its storied place in rhythm and blues, rock, punk, pop, hip-hop, and electronic dance music, and is intended to connect the histories, philosophies, and practices of urban spaces to other historical and global popular music communities. Each year Detroit celebrates this local-meets-global history with the Movement Electronic Music Festival, which in 2020 will commence the same weekend as the IASPM-US conference.

More details on the conference will be posted on the IASPM-US site in the upcoming months.
