BOOK LAUNCH “More Than Loud” edited by Paula Guerra
This book explores the ‘many worlds that exist within each sound’. Indeed, if we situate ourselves in the field of pop rock, we can easily realize that the different arrangements of this gender and style have been over the last seventy years, the core of the structuring of experiences and leisure and cultural sociability around the world, giving rise to a profusion of tastes, spaces, works, (sub)cultures and styles. Given its importance, it is no wonder that over the last three decades, music has come to constitute a priority area of sociological reflection on how this relates to the social structure, the way whereby the worlds of music are designed, configured and canonized and the importance of music in the identity formation of his listeners. In this book, we present some research on music developed in Portugal, in the social sciences and humanities field, bringing together researchers from different generations and theoretical and institutional affiliations.
