Studying MJ’s ‘Dangerous’: 4 Reasons To Read ‘Dangerous Philosophies’
By Elizabeth Amisu
I started this free video series by giving you some pointers on re-listening and re-watching for Michael Jackson research. It’s important, however, to take some of those thoughts to new and exciting places with secondary reading, too.
In the third video, I encourage you to read the Dangerous-focused chapters in The Dangerous Philosophies of Michael Jackson: His Music, His Persona, and His Artistic Afterlife. I spent three years listening, watching, and reading Michael Jackson’s work in a passion project which resulted in the world’s first comprehensive academic book on Michael’s whole solo adult career. Find out more about the book in these interviews with The Journal of Michael Jackson Studies: Interview 1>> Interview 2>>
Thank you for all the thoughtful and supportive shares, likes, comments and questions on The Journal of Michael Jackson Academic Studies dedicated Facebook, Twitter, and Website, from the first two videos I shared. I read all the comments, and I’m so glad these videos are helping you study, learn and grow.
If you missed the first two videos in the series, I invite you to watch them now to learn the five reasons why starting Michael Jackson’s own words is so necessary, and which book is most helpful for contextualizing Michael Jackson’s career.
