  • Summer School on “Music, Multiculturalism and the Postcolonial Condition,” Helsinki 3-4 July 2017. Deadline: March 1, 2017. Description: As global migration alters societal and cultural conditions, musical practices and environments transmute. The global postcolonial condition is indeed clearly visible and audible in myriad forms of music that evince the pervasiveness of racialisation, parochialism and banal nationalism, while at the same celebrating creative hybridity, multicultural authenticities and cultural encounters.

We are therefore interested in reflecting on the role of music and its different exponents (performers, composers, students, listeners, agents, etc.) in contexts of both current and past crises.
