III International Conference

The research network “Trayectorias” invites to its III. International Conference, taking place from March 14 to 16, 2019 in the Universidad Alberto Hurtado, in collaboration with the Chilean Arts Academy. The conference will explore processes of transfer, appropriation, and transformation of ideas, repertories, and musical practices from Latin America to Europe and from Europe to Latin America during the last three decades of the 20th century, focusing on migration and exile, the role of musical institutions, festival and the music industry, and the interactions between music and politics. Researchers from different Latin American and European countries will present papers on different musical genres, from contemporary music and HIP to tango, nueva canción, techno and rap. We will also organize round tables, a book presentation, and a concert. The preliminary program will be published here.

The activities of the conference are open to all interested participants and are free of charge.
