Dr. Ana Alonso-Minutti to lecture at the University of Vienna

UNM’s Dr. Ana Alonso-Minutti, Associate Professor of Musicology & Ethnomusicology, will travel to Vienna this week to lecture on Noise and Extractivism at the US-Mexico Border. Of the lecture, Dr. Minutti writes: “Drawing from ethnographic research and sound analysis, in this presentation I discuss sonic and visual production by Indigenous and Hispanic artists whose work exposes the consequences that colonial extractivism has brought upon the land. I propose to understand their use of noise as a decolonial strategy to interrupt policies and politics of oppression. Their lived borderland experience and their practice of ‘noising’ is meant to enact a more equitable and just environment.”

The lecture will take place on at the University of Vienna Institute of Musicology on May 17, at 6:00pm Central European Time.
