CFP: Music and Migration, University of Southampton

This conference will explore the relationship between music and migration by providing new insights into the creative practices and life-stories of migrant artists across the globe. A core theme of the conference will be the motivations and experiences of migrant musicians who leave, return, stay or move beyond their localities.

Keynote speakers:
• Professor Nina Glick-Schiller, University of Manchester
• Professor Philip Bohlman, University of Chicago

Suggested themes for academic papers include (non-exhaustive list):
• Transnational musicians’ networks
• Musical experiences of diaspora
• Global and local music industries
• Return migration and ‘emergent’ cultural hubs
• Migration routes that by-pass well-established (e.g. post-colonial) pathways
• Identity Texts/musical genre/aesthetics/ multimodality
• Local and global cultural hubs
• Migrant and post-migrant cultural production
• Relationships between artistic and socio-political engagement
• Cultural policy
• Historical perspectives on musical culture transfer

We welcome submissions to present papers (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions) on the
conference themes.
