- Culture and Politics Event Series
- Leiden University
As part of this Culture and Politics specialisation event, Prof. John Anderson (University of St Andrews, Scotland) will speak about the importance of attention to music vis à vis international politics. He will explore several specific examples of music on the political scene—from national anthems to protest music—with attention to the ways in which individuals and groups spanning the political spectrum leverage music to achieve their political objectives. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session, so students are encouraged to come with some questions pre-tuned!
Culture and Politics Event Series
