Global Music and Sound Studies

This workshop aims to develop a working campus community dedicated to the critical, historical, and ethnographic analysis of sound and global musical traditions. 

Events, workshops, and performances will explore how connections between global-music scholars and sound-studies scholars can highlight the importance of audibility/audition in everyday cultural life and can foster new forms of critical listening that pay attention to the diversity and differences in our sonic landscapes.
