Appel de conférences pour la journée d’étude « Music and Antifascism. Reflections on the Past and Possibilities in the Present », Université McGill, 7 juillet 2022.
Conférence d’honneur : Federico Spinetti (Université de Cologne).
« How have artists resisted the global surge of far-right movements and authoritarian regimes through music and music-making? How has music been mobilized against fascism and fascist tendencies in societies in the 20th and 21st centuries?
The aim of this one-day symposium is to discuss the role of music in antifascist action in response to the recent surge in ultranationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory, and authoritarian regimes throughout the world, which threaten not only democratic governance systems and basic human rights, but also ecological sustainability. Antifascist resistance has long connected people across borders and time periods yet has also manifested in distinctive ways in specific socio-political settings. Through discussions of historical and contemporary examples, participants will initiate dialogue that analyzes a diversity of musical activity related to antifascism, with the aim of illuminating paths for engaging in anti-oppressive politics through music and sound. »
