Rudolstadt Symposium – Labour Songs Across The Globe


The conference will take a comparative look at the culture of political songs, including its various manifestations in different regions of the world. Academics, music journalists and musicians will debate aspects such as the historical and cultural circumstances in which music becomes political, the types of music involved, the people who make it, and the contexts in which this music becomes influential, e.g. by generating group identities.

Devised by Prof. Martin Butler from Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg
With Srđan Atanasovski (Serbia), Stefan Bohman (Sweden), Mark Gregory (Australia), Frank D. Gunderson (USA), Clark D. ‘Bucky’ Halker (USA, see photo), Michael Kleff (Germany), Richard MacKinnon (Canada), Hazel Marsh (UK)

Martin Butler and Michael Kleff will deliver their papers in German, the other speakers in English. Simultaneous interpretation into English and German available.
Library/Bibliothek –– Friday 6 July, 9.00am, all day
