MUSICULT ‘16 Music and Cultural Studies Conference, organized by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center), will take place on May 13-14, 2016.
MUSICULT ‘16 Conference aims to trace the tracks of the dialectic correlation between music and culture. Artistic crops of this correlation from the very ancient roots of the communication with sound to the contemporary state are among the field of interest of the conference. During the conference and within the context of culture and identity, well-known periods and moments of the history of music in the all possible meanings, forms and genres will be brought to the agenda and new areas of interest, that will be revealed by this perspective, will be explored on the basis of the main focus point as “Local versus Universal”.
