Trayectorias / Cultural Exchanges. Music between Latin America and Europe 1945–1970 (5.-7.4.2017)

The conference will focus on the developments of art music in the 1950s and 1960s. Paper presentations and posters should focus on the transfer and reciprocal appropriation of ideas, repertories, aesthetics, styles, and techniques or musical practices and theoretical reflection in musicology. The symposium will investigate relevant travels either for guest performances or studies, exile as well as other temporary or long-lasting migration. Papers and posters discussing aspects like society, politics and ideology or federal support, sponsoring and institutional strategies will also be considered. The conference’s organizers especially encourage transdisciplinary studies and contributions from the visual arts, theater, literature, philosophy, history, sociology and cultural anthropology that are connected with music or musicology. All papers should focus the period between 1945 and 1970.
The event will be supported and funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
