Music Network: Presentations from Sergio Sorcia Reyes & Nancy Katingima Day

November 16, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


We are very excited to share details of a special forthcoming session for the Music Network: two of our members have recently reached that brilliant milestone of having submitted their PhD theses.  This session will include a short presentation from each on their research followed by a discussion – and we will also be sending them very good wishes for their vivas.  Please do join us to hear about this exciting research and to support them if you can:

Sergio Sorcia Reyes: The Music Ecology of Narcocorridos in Mexico’s Everyday Life

This research was a qualitative study of the role of narcocorridos music in the everyday life of young people in Mexico. In this session, I will explain how I used a patchwork and multi-sited ethnography for studying multiple forms of engagement in public spaces. I will also speak about the ways in which this controversial music is used to produce a particular type of atmosphere that frame certain dispositions for collective action.

Nancy Katingima Day: Towards a Philosophy of Music Education in Contemporary Kenya

Much as music is argued to be a universal language, its realisation and understanding can also be highly contextualised.  This thesis responds to the need to approach music and its education through the eyes of a theoretical framework called Utu.  I will tease out what the framework offers regarding music and education in Kenya, and offer new ways of approaching and understanding these areas both locally and internationally.

Venue: This is a HYBRID session.  Please join us in person if you can in the Ground floor meeting room in Staff House (SH01)

If you are new to St Luke’s campus, Staff House is a little tucked away, you access it through a beautiful garden, so it is well worth the visit.  It is No. 15 on this map: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/visit/directions/stlukesmap/
