Announcing our 2022 lectures!

The Arnold Shaw Popular Music Research Center is proud to announce its spring 2022 lectures — back in person on the UNLV campus! The Shaw Center’s mission is to preserve items related to popular music studies and to serve as a platform for current research about popular music. Our lecture series fulfills this second goal, welcoming popular music scholars from outside of UNLV to share their work and perspectives. All events are free and open to the public. Please join us!

April 11, 5:00: Chris Washburne (Columbia University) on Latin Jazz
