Baltic Musics After the Post-Soviet

January 21-23, 2022, Amherst College, Virtual
Deadline: April 1, 2021

“Baltic Musics After the Post-Soviet” is an international conference hosted virtually at the Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Amherst College (Massachusetts, USA) on January 21-23, 2022. The conference will bring together scholars and artists working in the Baltics (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and areas connected by the Baltic Sea) and with Baltic musics to document and understand emerging worlds and narratives of Baltic music. The three-day event will focus on questions of creative and scholarly practice after the “post-Soviet”: What happens as processes of return, reunion, restoration, revival, and reconciliation characterizing “post-Soviet” life in the Baltics give way to new emergencies and urgencies? What happens as generations less impacted by the experience of Soviet occupation and coloniality create sounds and spaces beyond the “post-Soviet”? For Baltic musicians, musical publics, and scholars working to decolonize national culture, critically rethink ethnolinguistic and racialized identities in musical life, and make scenes and traditions sustainable, the certainty of the “post-Soviet” as “that which we no longer are” is also its limit—always once occupied, once colonized.

Confirmed keynote speakers and presenters are:

Kevin Karnes (Emory University), Rūta Stanevičiūtė (Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre), Laura Jēkabsone (Composer/Arranger, Latvian Voices)

We invite music- and sound-centered papers and presentations of creative work that address Baltic musics after the “post-Soviet” from practice-based, ethnographic, historical, and comparative perspectives. For papers, please submit a 250-word abstract along with a 150-word biography. For maker and performer presentations, please submit either a 250-word description of your presentation plan or a prospective program with a 100-word description of relevant themes, topics, or connecting threads. All maker and performer proposals should include 1-3 links to audio/visual/other if relevant materials that are representative of the proposed presentation. All materials should be submitted in PDF format to by April 1, 2021.
