The categorical system of popular music, such as genre categories, is a highly differentiated and dynamic classification system. In this article we present work that studies different aspects of these categorical systems in popular music. Following the work of Paul DiMaggio, we focus on four questions: How does the position of popular music vary in terms of its place in the cultural hierarchy and the manner in which it is legitimated? How do social and symbolic boundaries mutually shape each other? What are the consequences of boundary crossing in popular music, and do these effects vary across different subfields of popular music? How do classification systems in popular music change over time?
