The domestic branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, or IASPM-US, will host its annual conference on the UNC campus today through Sunday. The organization will offer lectures and discussions on topics ranging from the parallels between surfing and music to the research and documentation of various local music scenes. Southern Culture on the Skids will also perform Friday night at Playmaker’s Theatre, in conjunction with their career-retrospective at Wilson Library.

The professional organization promotes and provides a forum for academic approaches to popular music and culture, including research into the ways popular music affects “personal and collective identity, geographic identity, political affiliation, technological change and adaptation, the economic and legal parameters of ‘intellectual property,’ and the sociology of consumer-based fan cultures.”

The event  is open only to dues-paying members of the IASPM-US (which range from $39 for student memberships to $81 joint memberships). Registration costs range from $70 for full-time students to $150 for “sustaining” registrations (which help offset the student discounts). The INDY’s music editor, Grayson Currin, and contributor Ashley Melzer will speak Friday at IASPM-US.
