Musicology Colloquium
Thursday March 12, 2020
2:00-3:30pm
CFA 2100 

This talk explores the relationship between trauma and identity by examining Arab music performance on the U.S.–Mexico border. Drawing on the musicking of Syrian and Mexican migrant communities, I interrogate theories of cultural and psychological trauma and borderland epistemologies to explore how border tensions influence the often-fraught views of identity.

She is the founder and director of the UTEP’s internationally recognized Middle Eastern music ensemble, Layali Al-Sham.
