Popular music studies in kassel and the Germanies – looking back, looking ahead
In the summer term of 1982, Philip Tagg taught a class on popular music at today's Music Institute of Kassel University (then West Germany). He had been invited by (and stayed privately with) Helmut Rösing, Professor for Systematic Musicology. This was only shortly after the first international conference on popular music in Amsterdam and the founding of IASPM in 1981, and Peter Wicke setting up the "Centre for Popular Music Research" at the East-Berlin's Humboldt-University in the same year.
