CALL FOR PAPERS
The Mediterranean Sea gives way to a rich, complex and diverse cultural area, marked by multiple and intertwined processes of interaction between Europe, the Maghreb, the Balkans and Turkey. These processes of cultural exchange have found in music one of its best carriers, embodying issues of hybridization, métissage and patrimonialization; postcolonial relationships, globalization, and also migrancy and diaspora movements.
This special issue pretends to gather original works about the cultural complexity of the Mediterranean through the lens of music and from a interdisciplinary perspective, which deals with traditional music, popular music, local music scenes, diasporas, musical practices, cultural industries, theory, etc.
We accept contributions in Spanish, English, French, Italian and Portuguese. The deadline for the submission of the articles is September 2009.
