Music, Migration, Belonging/s in 21st-Century Europe

The conference “Music, Migration, Belonging/s” provides a discursive space to specifically engage with the connections and interdependencies of music, migration, and (non-)belonging/s, with a focus on 21st-century Europe. The concept of belonging is explored within the realm of music, as both a challenge and opportunity for music and migration studies. We aim to discuss how belonging as a theoretical perspective can help us grasp the dynamics, intersections, contradictions, and constants in the lives of migrated individuals/groups connected through music, deliberately opening the perspective beyond ethnic/national identities.

The conference is organized by Ass.-Prof. Dr. Anja Brunner, Tessa Balser-Schuhmann and María del Mar Ocaña Guzmán within the research project “Women Musicians from Syria: Performance, Networks, Belonging/s after Migration”, funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF (V706-G29), and carried out at the Music and Minorities Research Center (MMRC) at the mdw – University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Additional funding is provided by the Department of Folk Music Research and Ethnomusicology (mdw).

The conference will be held in English.
