Part I of Volume 35 of Studies in Symbolic Interaction contains 13 cutting-edge essays, in 3 separate sections, that examine the impact of popular music on symbolic interaction and society. Musical worlds, styles, scenes, spaces, genres, performances, traditions, and identities are examined. Seven articles in Part II - New Interpretive Works - focus on family, race, self, time, narrative, silence in musical spaces, and emotion management in sport families.

Volume 27 of Studies in Symbolic Interaction emphasizes new developments in interactionist theory and practice, as well as examples of post-modern ethnography and performance texts focused on border crossings and border performances. The volume also presents essays honoring Laurel Richardson's contributions to Symbolic Interaction and Communications, as well as the inaugural address in the Peter M. Hall Lecture Series.
