The first edition of my book, titled Where the Music Takes You: The Social Psychology of Music Subcultures, is now available at Cognella Academic Publishing. It is available for purchase & course adoption (for instructors) here. It will be available on Amazon.com in the near future.
In addition, I have published three papers examining variation in affective meanings. In 2008, “From Festies to Tourrats: Examining the Relationship Between Jamband Subculture Involvement and Role Meanings,” was published in Social Psychology Quarterly. In 2010, “Are You Kynd? Conformity and Deviance Within the Jamband Subculture,” was published in Deviant Behavior. In these two studies, I use hierarchical multivariate linear modeling to examine the relationship between membership in the jamband subculture and the affective meanings (evaluation, potency, and activity) of two types of social concepts: roles and behaviors. In 2012, I published a paper investigating differences between members' meanings for interaction settings (e.g., a concert, a police station) and nonmembers' meanings. I conducted these studies using survey data I collected from over 1,100 attendees of jamband music events.
Further, my published work can be found in a book chapter of Music Sociology: An Introduction to the Role of Music in Social Life, available for purchase at Amazon.com and at Paradigm Publishing. The will be in print September 2013. Finally, I authored four entries in the recently released Encyclopedia of Social Deviance, published by Sage Knowledge.
