Music and Migration

Music, Interdisciplinary, Musicology
Wolfgang Gratzer, Nils Grosch, Ulrike Präger, Susanne Scheiblhofer [Hg.]

Music and migration are substantially interdependent. Music itself is mobile: as an art form, as a commodity, on data storage devices, as the knowledge and skills of migrating musicians and as an anchor of memory for people with migration experiences. This handbook presents the theoretical and methodological foundations of the research field of music and migration and explores their potential for future projects.

The interest in the interrelationship between art and migration phenomena, which has long existed in the disciplines of cultural and art studies, has been rekindled and inspired by current refugee movements.

An international collective of 24 authors has compiled two basic works in German and English. The basic works are intended to provide a solid basis for future artistic and scientific research in the fields of music and migration and to inspire new undertakings.
