PTSD Meets OST
Deepen your understanding of the relationship between trauma and identity on Thursday, March 12 at ethnomusicology scholar Andrea Shaheen Espinosa’s Arab Musicking on the U.S.–Mexico Border presentation, which examines Arab borderland musical performance. Espinosa’s work explores music, migration and trauma, specifically the musicking of Syrian and Mexican migrant communities, and interrogates theories of cultural and psychological trauma and borderland epistemologies as well as the ways in which border tensions can influence often-fraught views of migrant identity. This free, all-ages presentation is sponsored by the University of New Mexico Department of Music and the Latin American and Iberian Institute and runs from 2 to 3:30pm in Room 2100 of the Center for the Arts.
