Profile

Dr. Julian Schaap (Rotterdam, 1988) is Assistant-Professor Sociology of Music at the Department of Arts and Culture Studies. His research focuses on stratification in cultural production and consumption practices, with popular music in particular. For more information, please see: www.julianschaap.com

Combining cognitive and cultural sociology with the sociology of ethno-racial/gender stratification, Julian studied the (re)production of whiteness and masculinity of rock music reception for his dissertation research. For this project, entitled ‘Elvis has finally left the building? Boundary work, whiteness and the reception of rock music in comparative perspective’, he received grants from NWO, Fulbright (for a visiting scholarship at Emory University, Atlanta, GA) and the Erasmus Trustfonds. He defended his dissertation cum laude in October 2019 and received multiple awards for his work, including the Praemium Erasmianum Dissertation Prize 2020 and the Erasmus University Research Award 2020.

In 2018, Julian published a book on gender inequality in metal music production, together with Dr. Pauwke Berkers (ESHCC).

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.
