Course content

This course requires you to consider how hybrid and diasporic identities are created, performed and interpreted in increasingly diverse societies, and to develop arguments surrounding approaches to intercultural exchange. You will engage with discourses of post-colonialism, critical theory, cosmopolitanism and decolonisation to understand relationships and representations through the entanglements of race, power and privilege.

An emphasis on the adaptation and transformation of languages of sound, notation and gesture will allow you to consider the fluid relationships between composers and performers. You will explore processes of invention across and between traditional musics by considering aspects of innovation, creativity, identity, appropriation, hybridity, diaspora, politics and digital cultural heritage.
