EthNoise! Workshop Will Meet This Thursday, Feb. 28 (and on 3/7, 3/14)

Dear all,

I hope your week is off to a great start! I’m writing to remind you that EthNoise! will meet this Thursday, February 28 in Rosenwald 301 from 5-6:20 pm. Our presenter will be Thalea Stokes, who will be presenting their paper, “Hip-Hop Culture among Mongols in Mongolia and China: The Development of a New Tradition throughout the Mongolian Diaspora.” For those of you who attended the workshop a few weeks ago, you’ll remember that Thalea discussed Mongolian hip-hop culture in China. During this week’s presentation, Thalea will expand their focus on Mongolian hip-hop culture to include a comparative look at Mongolian hip-hop both in China and in Mongolia. You won’t want to miss it! As always, snacks and drinks will be provided, and please reach out before then if you have any questions at all.
Finally, I wanted to remind you that the final two EthNoise! workshops of the quarter will meet on March 7 and March 14; both presenters are current PhD candidates in ethnomusicology here at UChicago. On March 7, Mili Leitner Cohen will present “What Women Want: The Weaponization of Women’s Sung Prayer at Jerusalem’s Western Wall.” On March 14, Joe Maurer will discuss a chapter from his dissertation, in which he focuses on music education among immigrant communities in Chicago. Mark your calendars!

Until then,

Reminder: EthNoise! Will Meet This Thursday, February 7

Dear all,

I’m writing to remind you that EthNoise! will meet this Thursday, February 7, from 5-6:20 pm in Rosenwald 301. As part of a very special 2-part workshop, Thalea Stokes (PhD student, Ethnomusicology) will be presenting a paper called, “Mongolian Hip Hop in China: A Unique Political Balancing Act.” Three weeks later, on February 28, Thalea will be back in town to present “Hip-Hop Culture among Mongols in Mongolia and China: The Development of a New Tradition throughout the Mongolian Diaspora.” Whereas the first presentation deals with the reception of Mongolian hip hop in China, the second takes a more comparative approach as Thalea delves deeper into the significance of local expressions of hip-hop culture that cross national and cultural divides. I’ll be sending more information about this second presentation as the time draws nearer. In the meantime, please reach out if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
Sincerely,
Jon Bullock
