Cultural Exchanges: Music between Latin America and Europe

About Us

The research network “Trayectorias / Cultural Exchanges: Music between Latin America and Europe was established in 2014 for the study of the musical exchanges between Latin America and Europe after 1945. Its members include Christina Richter Ibáñez (University of Tübingen), Ulrike Mühlschlegel (Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut IAI; Ibero-American Institute), Daniela Fugellie (University of the Arts Berlin, now Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago de Chile), Omar Corrado (University of Buenos Aires), María Alice Volpe (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro), and two members of the Center for the Study of the Musical Culture of the Postwar Period at the University of the Arts Berlin (Dörte Schmidt and Matthias Pasdzierny).

The network has organized two international conferences (Rio de Janeiro 2015; Berlin 2017). Both conference proceedings will be published during the second semester of 2018, and embrace around 40 original papers, dedicated to different topics of the musical exchanges during the postwar period (among them migration and exile, cultural politics, tours by orchestras and soloists, music festivals, and musicological production) from different theoretical and methodological perspectives. The authors are scholars from Austria, Germany, Holland, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Uruguay, Mexico, and the United States. The third conference of the network will be held in Santiago de Chile in March 2019.
