Lecture Title:
Imagining Something Better: Punk, Tejano, La Bamba, and Other Rolas from My Border Hi-Fi

Description:

With a focus on narrative soundscapes from borderlands communities, this presentation reflects on the ways that music —in particular, Chicana/o punk— can examine complicity, entanglement and compromise in relation to nation, identity, migration and globalization.
