Summary

The programme explores the role of music within the broad framework of culture for development, building on the premise that music and associated performance activities represent rich discursive sites where local knowledge, social structures and cultural meanings are negotiated, challenged and affirmed. Drawing on the intersections between ethnomusicology and a range of allied disciplines, the programme encourages critical examination of how knowledge is acquired and communicated through music, how music is used to promote, reflect or resist development, and how music’s agentive and imaginative capacities act in different cultural and political contexts to advance individual and collective interests and identities.
