“Sound in Motion” keynote address

Professor Jason Stanyek will be giving a keynote address for the international “Sound in Motion” workshop that is taking place in at the Center for Global Studies, University of Bern, Switzerland, on 20 and 21 September 2019. The event aims to bring together scholars from various disciplinary traditions, discussing issues of sounding and listening practices in relation to human mobility, space occupation, (de)territorialization, and migration. Professor Stanyek’s address, derived from his ethnographic research on music and dance in Brazilian diasporic communities in the United States, is titled “Untranslatable Mobilities: The Aural Politics of Saudade in the Brazilian Diaspora.”
