Call For Papers

Ulrich Beck writes; ‘Transnational place polygamy, marriage to several places at once, belonging in different worlds: this is the gateway to globality in one’s own life.’

There are many instances of ‘Westerners’ adopting cultural practices from the developing or post-colonial world. Whereas European and North American cultural influence is often commodified, this flow in the other direction tends to be participatory and community based. We are interested in papers reporting and/or theorising research on such phenomena from music, dance, language, religion, art and other cultural forms. The conference will be interdisciplinary and perspectives from ethnomusicology, anthropology, sociology, cultural geography and other disciplines are welcome.

The language of the conference is English.

Please send abstracts of around 150 words to: Dr Jochen Eisentraut, by January 1st 2014.
