Book Presentation: Music and Democracy. Participatory Approaches

Please register here for the online book presentation!

Thursday, 20 January 22, from 5:30 to 7 pm CET

Music is a resource for societal transformation processes. This book provides recent insights into how individuals and groups used and still use music to achieve social, cultural and political participation and bring about social change. The contributors present outstanding perspectives on the topic: From the promise and myth of democratization through music technology; to the use of music in imposing authoritarian, neoliberal or even fascist political ideas in the past and present; up to music’s impact on political systems, governmental representation, and socio-political realities. The volume further features approaches in the fields of gender, migration, disability, and digitalization.

Edited by Marko Kölbl and Fritz Trümpi at mdwPress with contributions by Katelyn Best, Ondřej Daniel, Milena Dragičević Šešić, David Ferreiro Carballo, Julija Matejić, Ben Morgan & Raphaël Nowak, Gabrielle Prud’homme, Rumya Putcha, Marsha Siefert and Dean Vuletic.
