Greetings to All.
Join us for a talk by Professor Alessandro Portelli, world renowned and highly influential oral historian and musicologist, who will discuss the role of migrant sounds from Afghanistan, China, Ecuador, Philippines, India, Kurdistan, Romania, Senegal, and Somalia in Italian folk music.
In 2015, Professor Portelli was awarded the prestigious Dan David Prize for his extraordinary work over the last three decades in linking oral history and collective memory, completely changing and enriching the way we look at history and the past. With his research, Professor Portelli has transformed the way subjectivity and history coalesce to form meaning. He has been a pivotal figure in the investigation of history and society via eyewitness testimony.
