AoM-LS/MC 2022

We are happy to announce our 3rd “Anthropology of Music Lecture Series and Master Class” in 2022 with Louise Meintjes. This year’s event is entitled 'Attending to the Moment: Aesthetics, Politics, Sound'. In a series of three lectures and in conversation with master class participants and their research projects, Louise Meintjes will discuss the relationship between aesthetics, politics and sound. In the framework of what she calls an ethical analysis of sound she will explore the question of how to understand the complex entanglements of political and aesthetic arenas by attending to the moment and making it resonate in ethnographic description. >>READ MORE

And see our Flyer for more information on the programme.
