Music and Migration

The research initiative Music and Migration aims to set transdisciplinary cooperation impulses in the field of music and migration. Our aim is to discuss the content and relevance of adaptable key concepts such as migration, mobility, exile, identity and integration for musical migration research and to make them usable for subject areas of different time periods and regions. Conversely, from a musicological perspective, a socially relevant discourse on mobility and migration should be offered. Making such a discourse constructive seems to be more urgent than ever, and it should not be left to continue complaining crisis scenarios, as migration can be interpreted as an enabling and fertilizing factor for cultural dynamics.
