Aankondiging: Musicologische Expo 2020

Musicological Expo 2020

Digital event on December 12th

Language: English


After the successful first edition in 2019, the KVNM is excited to announce the second Musicological Expo.


Session 1 (11.00 - 13.00 hours): Music and Migration

Focus on migration and migrants’ activities have enriched music studies in manifold ways over the past decades. During this panel, meLê yamomo, Iye Echa, Marthe Holman, and Rebekah Ahrendt (moderator) will shed light on this topic by introducing their research on music and migration in colonial Southeast Asia, West African djembe musicians in the Netherlands, and Dutch charity organizations working with music projects and refugees.


Session 2 (15.00 - 17.00 hours): Music and Whiteness in The Netherlands

Whiteness is the default setting of most Dutch music institutions. Curricula at the Conservatories and musicology departments remains rooted in white European musical traditions, and the faculty at such institutions remain overwhelmingly white. This panel will address the historical background as well as the present-day impact of this environment on white and non-white people who navigate the Dutch music world. Speaker and moderator TBA.
