Music videos promote popular artists in cultural forms that circulate widely across social media networks. With the advent of YouTube in 2005 and the proliferation of handheld technologies and social networking sites, the music video has become available to millions worldwide, and continues to serve as a fertile platform for the debate of issues and themes in popular culture. This volume of essays serves as a foundational handbook for the study and interpretation of the popular music video, with the specific aim of examining the industry contexts, cultural concepts, and aesthetic materials that videos rely upon in order to be both intelligible and meaningful. Easily accessible to viewers in everyday life, music videos offer profound cultural interventions and negotiations while traversing a range of media forms. From a variety of unique perspectives, the contributors to this volume undertake discussions that open up new avenues for exploring the creative changes and developments in music video production. With chapters that address music video authorship, distribution, cultural representations, mediations, aesthetics, and discourses, this study signals a major initiative to provide a deeper understanding of the intersecting and interdisciplinary approaches that are invoked in the analysis of this popular and influential musical form.

Skilfully curated by Lori Burns and Stan Hawkins, this Handbook engages with a wide range of music video, from punk, indie rock, pop, country, R&B, and hip-hop to more experimental practices. The authors use multimodal analysis and the theories of hypermedia and transmedia to ensure cutting-edge analysis, while innovative readings based on gender, race, and religion help situate music video within its wider cultural, social, and political contexts. From big-budget productions to low-fi work and animation, this Handbook marks an exciting new turn for the study of Music Video.
