In response to requests over the years, the co-chairs have prepared a brief bibliography of source materials in which the chief subject is theorizing Applied Ethnomusicology as a field of inquiry and practice rather than the description of a particular project in Applied Ethnomusicology. It's listed here in chronological order by year of publication.
