Portraying Pop

School of Media, Design and Technology lecturer contributes chapter to book celebrating The Pop Festival; a series of thought provoking essays looking at the history, politics and aesthetic qualities of the pop festival.

Published earlier this month, academic book, The Pop Festival features a chapter ‘Out of sight: the mediation of the music festival‘, written by Senior Lecturer Dr Mark Goodall.

Dr Mark Goodall explains: “The chapter is an examination of the way that media, principally film, has represented the pop festival.”

“It looks at important historical examples of pop festival mediation including the films Woodstock and Gimme Shelter, as well as earlier films about jazz festivals. The chapter concludes by briefly discussing how new media have affected the image of the pop festival in the 21st century.”

The Pop Festival, which is already receiving positive reviews, can be purchased on the Bloomsbury website
