Summary

This conference will take a fresh look at the sociology of cultural globalization and help synthetizing localized research studies, allowing us to transform our vision of jazz history focused up to this point on its major centres of creation (United States, Europe). This conference will thus contribute to a more precise definition of the contours of "global jazz". 

Announcement

Argument

An international conference entitled "Global Circulations of Jazz" will be held on June 27-28, 2013, at the Musée du Quai Branly. Bringing together specialists, anthropologists, historians, musicologists, sociologists, it will explore the dissemination of jazz outside of its places of birth. We will look at this ‘other jazz’, whose history is little and poorly known. Jazz music circulated very early, and engendered particularly rich and fertile musical and cultural progeny around the world. Papers are encouraged that will increase our understanding of the spread of jazz in South Africa, in Mauritius and in the Indian Ocean, South America and even in India and Asia. This "global" jazz prefigured the great movement of globalization of popular music in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but remains poorly documented. The conference will bring together researchers from different countries, who have begun to address, preferably on an empirical basis, these secondary circuits of diffusion.

This conference will take a fresh look at the sociology of cultural globalization and help synthetizing localized research studies, allowing us to transform our vision of jazz history focused up to this point on its major centres of creation (United States, Europe). This conference will thus actively contribute to a more precise definition of the contours of "global jazz". 

The conference will conclude with the screening of a documentary on the dissemination of jazz in India, Finding Carlton. Uncovering the Story of Jazz in India, followed by a discussion with the director, Susheel Kurien.
