Call for Papers: Handbook of Critical Media Industry Studies
We seek chapter proposals for inclusion in the Handbook of Critical Music Industry Studies. Critical Music Industry Studies (CMIS) is an encompassing and inclusive field that describes research and analytical perspectives on the music industry that move beyond operational concerns or introductions to subsets of the sector. The Handbook marks an important step in the development of CMIS as a legitimate field of study, bringing together industry professionals and academics from a diverse set of disciplinary perspectives. As Music Industry Studies explodes, it is time to revisit the field as an academic mode of inquiry. Too often, music industry programs of study emphasize getting students jobs and hiring faculty with “real world experience.” As such, the field diverges from other scholarly projects (especially with “studies” in their title). These programs tend to resemble trade schools that emphasize working within the system at the expense of re-envisioning the system. By narrowly focusing on getting students jobs, these systems end up reenforcing structures of domination within the music business. We seek to bring together scholars to intervene in the field and provide teachers with a text to teach music industry students the problems, potential, and promises of performing music.
By request, the organizing committee of the III CIPS decided to reserve a part of the event to take place online. Please find more information below:

In recent decades, we have witnessed changes on a global scale that can be seen as threats to human existence itself – threats caused by ourselves, as the Anthropocene theories demonstrate. Climate change, pandemics, food shortages and wars are the result of the brutal exploitation of the planet, the struggle for control of natural and economic resources, as well as the denial of the ongoing crisis.

Over the last two decades. the South Korean music market has grown into the seventh largest in the world, while its boy band BTS was ranked number one in 2021 as the most popular and best-selling global artist by IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry). All these factsare simply confounding to many pundits of the industry as no postcolonial music market has achieved global breakthroughs as such other than South Korea. Only three countries in Asia are listed on the top 10 global music markets: Japan (2nd), China (6th) and South Korea (7th). Among these, South Korea is the only postcolonial country that became independent from Japan after the Second World War.
