From the Department of Music:
"Caribbean Borderlands and Sonic Encounters” at the University of Pennsylvania is the first conference in the five-year Balzan Foundation project, “Borderlands of Sonic Encounter.” Through reassessments of global soundscapes of the arts and humanities, the Balzan Foundation Project opens possibilities for redrawing the borders between the many fields that will contribute to it. “Caribbean Borderlands and Sonic Encounter” invites participants to engage with the various registers at which borderlands operate, connect, interrupt, energize, and otherwise inform and shape Caribbean musical lives and sonic encounters.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American and Latinx Studies.
