Call for Papers: Popular Music, Populism and Nationalism in Contemporary Europe
University of Oldenburg (Germany), 07–09 April 2022
Organisation: Prof. Dr. Mario Dunkel, Reinhard Kopanski, Simon Wehber (University of Oldenburg; Faculty III; Department of Music).
Deadline for submitting proposals: 15thNovember 2021
It is undisputed that the recent rise of populist-nationalist and far-right parties poses a challenge to democracies, not exclusively, but also in the European Union. However, “populism’s toxic embrace of nationalism,” as Lawrence Rosenthal calls it, is more than a party-political or economic phenomenon. It also has a cultural dimension, which remains largely unexplored. Regarding music as a ubiquitous cultural practice, this conference addresses this cultural dimension from three music-oriented perspectives:
The symposium is organised by Research Association Suoni and the Kone Foundation funded research project ”Music researchers in society: Advancing social justice through activist music research” in collaboration with University of Helsinki (Musicology), CEMFOR — Centre for Multidisciplinary Studies on Racism at Uppsala University, IASPM-Norden (International Association for the Study of Popular Music and Music Finland.
Symposium conveners: Kim Ramstedt (Suoni) and Jasmine Kelekay (CEMFOR)

“When I Think of Home: Race and Borders in Popular Music”
April 21-23, 2022
Many of us have been home, listening to music. Stuck there during the global pandemic, we have explored what home sounds like and what home means materially, culturally, and in ways that are utterly personal. As a place of security that feels less a given than before; as a right that many do not enjoy; as a nexus of struggle in a time of gentrification, economic transformation, conflict over indigenous homelands. For some home is a place it can be necessary to leave, and for others it is one, as Stephanie Mills made clear, it sure would be nice to get back to.
The first colloquium of the 2021/2022 season, entitled “RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MUSIC AND NARRATIVE IN BATMAN FILMS”, will take place on Thursday, September 30th, and will be conducted by researcher and professor Santos Martínez Trabal (UAB). You will find all the information about it on our Website and Facebook (check the links below).
