Music of the Americas


The Working Group on Music of the Americas brought together GMU faculty and graduate students from several different disciplines with a common research interest in popular music. The working group proposed to move the transnational from the margins to the center. Through a series of panels and workshops, the Music of the Americas working group endeavoedr to advance interdisciplinary research into the hemispheric flow of musical ideas, sounds, practices, and preferences. The group included musical performance in their events in order to bring together realms of musical experience and ways of thinking about musical inquiry that have traditionally been kept separate.

Group contact was Matt Karush.
