18th IUAES World Congress : World (of) encounters: the past, present and future of anthropological knowledge
Deadline: February 28th, 2018
Music is often used as a tool to promote mutual comprehension or conciliation. In this panel, we aim to discuss the contacts and/or (mis)understandings created through musical encounters. This will lead us to consider the question of global music encounters and to cross urban studies with postcolonial and subaltern studies, contributing to set the anthropological approach of musical practices as an essential research field in the analysis of globalization.
Our temporal focus will be attached to the present, through ethnographic research on global music scenes, but also turned to the past, questioning the multiple musical encounters that have stimulated relationships of appropriation, power and belonging before and during the “global turn” of the 80'; and to the future, analysing these encounters for instance in musical educational processes. We want to show the multiple perspectives that a small-scale, bottom-up study of musical encounters offers to tackle the general question of cultural globalization. What is the specific role of historical representations of “otherness” for the current productions of the globalized musical scenes? What do those representations tell us about musical engagements and intercultural relationships? Those questions will help us to write new accounts of cultural encounters through musical practices, putting the current “global turn” into the broader timeline of “entangled histories”.
