12th-14th September 2022 - Music, Migration and Mobility: An Interdisciplinary International Conference - Online, hosted by the Royal College of Music
The conference will discuss music as a mobile phenomenon and reflect critically on methodological approaches and theoretical framings of music, especially the music of migrants. It will feature approximately 25 speakers from all over Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia who will explore music and musical history through the lens of mobility, as opposed to static, rigid categories of national or geographical belonging.
You are warmly invited to join the conversation! Find out more on the main conference page and book your free place here (Booking is free for RCM students and staff, a £1.95 fee applies for external bookings). For more information about the conference, click here.
