Event Description:

In his book Sounds of Crossing: Music, Migration, and the Aural Poetics of Huapango Arribeño (Duke 2017), guest lecturer Dr. Alex E. Chávez of the University of Notre Dame, explores the contemporary politics of Mexican migrant cultural expression manifest in the sounds and aural poetics of huapango arribeño, a musical genre originating from north-central Mexico. In this presentation, he draws on this work to address how Mexican migrants voice desires of recognition and connection through performance, and the politics such desires attain amidst the transnational context of migrant deportability.

This event is cosponsored by the Department of Latin American and Latino Studies; the Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance; the Mexican Studies Institute; and the Leonard Lief Library. The book discussion will be preceded at 11:00am by a lecture/recital by Dr. Chávez entitled “Huapango Arribeño: Aural Poetics of North-Central Mexico.”
