The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries

International Conference „From New Spain to Mexico: The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries(1517-1917)”
CFP deadline: 3 September 2017
Conference dates: 4-5 December 2017
Venue: International University of Andalusia, “Antonio Machado” Campus in Baeza, Jaen (Spain)
In 1917, the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States—still in force today—was promulgated. That year also witnessed the publication of the first history of music in Mexico: El arte musical en México by Alba Herrera y Ogazón. 1917 is, therefore, not only the starting point of a new Mexican constitutionalism but also that of the nascent historiography of Mexican music. Moreover, it is a point of arrival that allows us to pose, in contrast to traditional narratives, a retrospective view of Mexican music from that time back to 1517, when the expedition of the Andalusian conquistador Francisco Hernández de Córdoba reached the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

On June 1, the Vision Festival, in collaboration with Columbia University and the University of Pittsburgh, will convene its second one-day symposium of scholars and artists to address these and related issues. The Sound of Resistance weiterlesen
