Sonic Politics: Music and Social Movements in the Americas

The anthology Sonic Politics: Music and Social Movements in the Americas , edited by Olaf Kaltmeier and Wilfried Raussert, will be published in June 2019.

This publication is accompanied by a web page and a YouTube channel with playlists created for the individual chapters, where corresponding songs and artists can be found. These special addition provides the opportunity to listen to the songs at hand, while reading the essays, thus making the topic acoustically more "tangible". This adds a musically refreshing note to the intellectual content of the essays.

Please forward this message if you like the music channel!

With regard to the start into the main phase of the joint project Maria Sibylla Merian Center for Advanced Latin American Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences (CALAS) uni.aktuell writes about the background, expectations and goals of the research project. (Full article)
