The KISMIF Convenors inviting experienced and young scholars from various disciplines to participate in the KISMI Conference.

This is the first scientific event to be held inPortugaland in the European framework concerning this subject. Underground music scenes have long been associated with strong DIY (do-it-yourself) cultural practices. Therefore, in a sociological reflection, though open to all other social sciences, we intend to discuss the importance of the musical and artistic underground practices in the contemporary society for its volatility but also undeniable importance in the urban youth cultures.

The urban music cultures concerning the underground are still regarded as illegitimate objects of analysis in the more vast contemporary social theory framework. Yet they play a central role in the functioning of the musical (post)industry and in the emerging digital media landscape. It is also our intention to clarify and highlight musical scenes that pierce contemporary cities and give them rhythm, but also specific forms of identity and cultural and artistic heritage. This three-day conference, explores the contemporary landscape of urban underground music scenes and DIY cultures in a global context.

The Coordination of KISMIF Conference is planning a cultural program related to structuring theme of the Conference in the unique setting of Casa da Música and Oporto city.

Presentations can be related to the following themes

  • Social theory developments and complexities in music, arts, youth and urban cultures.
  • Historicity, genealogy and diachrony of musical scenes.
  • Meanings, identities, urban cultures and youth cultures.
  • Aging and gender in the musical underground scenes.
  • Urban spaces, musical scenes and new social movements.
  • Musical scenes and social networks.
