CFP: TRANS - Musics of the Mediterranean (journal)


TRANS- TRANS-Transcultural Music Review 14 (2010) is preparing a special issue on Musics of the Mediterranean for 2010, edited by Rubén Gómez Muns (Universitat Rovira i Virgili) and Fethi Salah (Ecole Normale Supérieure – Kouba – Argel). We are accepting original articles on this topic, which could complement those included in this number.

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.
