Conference 17.-18. September 2021

Conference Choral Life in Switzerland, 19th-21st Century

Switzerland is a country with intense choral life. The report Singing Europe, published by the European Choral Association in 2015, indicates that 7,2% of the Swiss population sang in a choir in 2008. Despite this significance, the study of choral life in Switzerland and its implications is almost entirely neglected in current scholarship. This two-day conference aims to foster interdisciplinary discussions about choral life in Switzerland from the 19th century to our days. It expects to contribute to a better understanding of activities and traditions that have had and still have far-reaching influences on musical and social aspects but have hardly been researched so far.

Transcultural Hip-Hop

Transcultural Hip-Hop: Constructing and Contesting Identity, Space, and Place in the Americas and beyond

Almost fifty years after its birth, hip-hop is considered a truly global phenomenon that combines elements of uniformity with local symbols and expressions regarding musical forms, lyrics, performances, and social content. This conference aims to focus on the transcultural, inter-ethnic and diasporic exchanges that created hip-hop and helped to spread it within the US and beyond. The conference (28.-30.10.21) asks how identity markers bound by ethnic, cultural, and spatial categories are being negotiated in hip-hop. While concentrating on the Americas, the conference will also include papers that focus on other world regions and on transregional entanglements.
