Dr. Amanda Mink's Lecture "Mapping Culture Across Borders: Music Research and U.S.-Mexico Relations in the 1930s and 40s.
Dr. Amanda Minks, Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology and Anthropology at the Univ. of Oklahoma will hold a lecture on Wednesday, March 11 @ 4pm in room #321, Music Building (Ave C). This lecture is sponsored by the Division of Music History, Theory and Ethnomusicology. The lecture is free and open to the public. The abstract of the lecture is:
In the 1930s and 40s, recording technology and music research were increasingly put to work in the documentation of local musics as a representation of regional, national, or universal human heritage in the Americas. This work was carried out under the auspices of national and international organizations that crafted cultural policies along with hierarchies of difference and value. The intellectual, political, and artistic interaction between Mexico and the United States was especially intimate and multilayered due to their shared history and border. In this presentation, I will examine how U.S. music researchers such as Charles Seeger, Henrietta Yurchenco, and Alan Lomax engaged (or failed to engage) with Mexican music, and how their projects intersected with broader inter-American politics. I argue for a more nuanced view of a history that is usually reduced to either celebratory homage of disciplinary forebears or critical dismissal of cultural imperialism. This analysis helps to recover the role of Mexican and other Latin American musics in the development of ethnomusicology as a discipline and practice. More broadly, it historicizes the contemporary discourse of Latino influence in the U.S. by emphasizing the deep roots of Latin American music in U.S. territory, and the long- term mutual influence between the U.S. and Mexico in cultural and political realms.
Join us on February 2, 2015 at 7 p.m. at SAGE Hall room 116 (Reception following at 8:00 p.m.) for a special discussion on "Latino-Black Relations in American Politics" between prominent scholars of racial and ethnic studies. Rodney Hero, President of the American Political Science Association (APSA) and the Haas Chair in Diversity and Democracy at the University of California, Berkely and Alvin B. Tillery Jr., APSA National Program Chair for 2015 and Associate Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University will be the prime speakers heading this discussion.
