Popular Music and place in contemporary Latin America

SLAS Conference
March 28-30
University of Liverpool

Call for papers

Music is a present element in the life of individuals living as part of communities and nations. Music in Latin America holds a rich variety of expressions originated within and outside the region. In an expansive trend of cultural globalisation, the study of music in its relationship to place and identity becomes a tricky task. This panel invites paper proposals by researchers working in the field of popular music in contemporary Latin America. Special interest is drawn to topics which relate to the complexities of the relationship between music and nation, identity, and memory.

Deadline for proposal submission 10th of February (Please not that you need to register to the conference no later than the 15 th of February).

If you would like to present on this panel please send an abstract to Violeta Mayer
