The next Nordic Sounds meeting will be an informal workshop where research group participants can come together to discuss critical themes and issues related to ongoing research on music in the Nordic countries.
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled. We will meet again in September.
A Study Day co-hosted by IASPM Norden & Nordic Sounds
All are invited to the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM Norden) Study Day at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo on September 14 2017.
The theme of the day is the study of popular music in the Nordic countries. Professor Stan Hawkins will introduce the event, which is co- hosted by our department’s Nordic Sounds: Critical Music Research Group.
Constitutionally protected freedom of expression and the development of a free and open public sphere during the 19th century are important historical preconditions for the open Nordic societies of today, consistently ranked at the top of the World Press Freedom Index.
The project aims to explore the gradual, uneven development within these fields in the Nordic region, through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.
