D’Aquino, Brian, Henriques, Julian and Vidigal, Leonardo. 2017. “A Popular Culture Research Methodology: Sound System Outernational”. Volume! 13 (2), pp. 163-175,

This paper explores an innovative practice-as-research methodology that brings popular culture practitioners and aficionados together with academic researchers in the shared space of symposia on reggae sound system culture. The organizers describe what made the first two iterations of Sound System Outernational different from the normal academic conference in terms of the range of participants, discussion topics, workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, film showings and the sound system sessions.
