Short abstract:

The panel will touch affection of sounds and politics in SE Europe in the widest anthropologically relevant aspects: from sound studies to anthropology of music and dance. It will especially theorize cross-sections of art and politics, work and leisure, affect and defiance, past and the present.

Long abstract:

The Balkans is a mess of sounds. In short distances, acoustic environments change, sounds of speech change, as well as sounds of music. These sounds as well rapidly change in time, locally and regionally. As empires, countries and nation-states in the region come and go, they leave traceable characteristics, continually transformed in new sounds: mixing, inverting, simulating, and charming. The panel will touch affection of sounds and politics in South-Eastern Europe in the widest possible anthropologically relevant aspects: from sound studies to anthropology of music and dance. It will especially theorize cross-sections of art and politics, work and leisure, affect and defiance, past and the present. The panel proposal is related to the research project Music and politics in post-Yugoslav space: toward new paradigm of politics of music at the turn of centuries, funded by Slovenian Research Agency (2018-2021), and organised in cooperation with IUAES Commission on Music, Dance, Performative Practices and Sound.
