Julian Schaap (1988) is assistant professor sociology of music at Erasmus University Rotterdam. His research focuses on two pillars: first, he studies social inequalities on the basis of class, gender and race-ethnicity in (cultural) consumption and production practices, with a focus on (popular) music. Second, he works on the myriad intersections between cognitive studies and cultural sociology, particularly Bourdieusian analyses. Aside from teaching various courses in sociology of culture, he is the organizer of a recurring series of artistic symposia called Music Talks, and he is coordinator of the educational minor program ‘Mu$ic: The economy, sociology and practice of popular music’.
