Symposium "Positions on the Role of Alpine Music Traditions in a Globalised World"

Symposium "Positions on the Role of Alpine Music Traditions in a Globalised World"

The Symposium will be dedicated to Globalisation, Interculturality and Identity: Which cultural, political or social relevance have Alpine music traditions in a globalised world? Which influence have globlalisation and migration on Alpine music traditions? Which position has identity in the triangle of conflicting priorities between global, local and regional? How do we interpret the increasing  popularity of traditional and folklore culture in society? The Symposium will be organised in cooperation with the Styrian Folk Song Society (Steirisches Volksliedwerk).

Dates: 22nd - 24th October 2015

Venue: Florentinersaal of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz
