Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 2HU

How is violence in contemporary Mexico impacting on music-making and other forms creative engagement, and conversely? What are the methodological challenges of exploring this empirically? The workshop will bring together established academics, post-doctoral scholars and postgraduate students for what we hope will be an exciting day of discussion.

The aim of the workshop is to interrogate music and other forms creative engagement that threaten and incite violent encounters; are explicitly anti-violence, imploring empathy and social activism; a combination of these; or otherwise. It will include conference-style papers, performance art, and a roundtable on methods, ethics and representation.

Confirmed speakers include Veronica Cordova de la Rosa (Oxford Brookes), Cirenia Chávez (Cambridge), Karina Garcia (Bristol), Jennie Galvin (NUI Galway), Andrew Green (IMR), Ricardo Gutiérrez Vargas (KCL), Hettie Malcomson (Southampton), José Juan Olvera Gudiño (CIESAS), Erica Segre (Cambridge) and Maria de Vecchi Gerli (UCL).
