This interdisciplinary international conference aims to investigate music as a mobile phenomenon, and the history of music as animated by mobility rather than fixity.

The conference will reflect critically on methodological approaches and theoretical framings of music, especially the music of migrants. It will feature over 25 papers and keynote lectures that explore music and musical history through the lens of mobility, as opposed to static, rigid categories of national or geographical belonging.

As an interdisciplinary event, it spans a wide variety of fields, including musicology and music practice, history, geography, philosophy, cultural studies, literary studies, sociology, anthropology, media studies, Jewish studies and education. Discussions between presenters will be facilitated by session chairs.

Please note, this is an online conference. A link to the conference will be emailed to you once you have booked your ticket.

A full programme of the day can be viewed on the main conference page.

This conference aims to build on the work of the AHRC-funded Music, Migration, and Mobility project, undertaken in partnership with Royal Holloway University of London and The University of Salzburg.
