Exploring Extreme Music and Marginalized Communities Bibliography is an American Libraries Association Carnegie-Whitney Grant funded project that examines extreme music (EM) written by and about members from marginalized communities, such as women, people of color (POC), and individuals that identify as LGBTQ+. In addition to books, this bibliography will also include multimedia resources including films, visual materials, digital playlists, and related materials.
This project fills the need to create awareness of the contributions of these groups, and to provide the resources to foster a growth of related research and scholarly works in the fields of music, anthropology, ethnomusicology, sociology, women and gender studies, ethnic studies, other humanities fields, and beyond.
This bibliography is in no way definitive. The librarians who curate the bibliography will continue to add books as they are published. One of the challenges encountered was the lack of books about extreme music and marginalized communities written by members of those communities. Despite this, there have been numerous books that have been released since the creation of the bibliography that will be added as time goes on.
