Music Department faculty members give talks at the New Currents in Ethnomusicology conference, British Forum for Ethnomusicology (BFE) 2016 Annual Conference

Dr. Ruth Hellier-Tinoco chaired and contributed to a lively Roundtable Session titled “Balancing theories and documenting lives: ethnomusicology, life writing, publishing ethics and values.”  Prof. Hellier-Tinoco also gave a paper titled “Football, singing and allegiances of (virtual) community: examining strategies of belonging through the Mexican national team fan anthem, Cielito Lindo.” For this project Dr. Hellier-Tinoco has been working with three UCSB undergraduate students —Elizabeth Orson, José Hernández and Bernardo Toledo-Reyes— who registered through the FRAP scheme.

Dr. Tim Cooley presented a paper on “Singing Surfing’s Colonization” and, as a seminal figure in the field of Ethnomusicology, was invited to make a contribution to the closing plenary session, along with Dr. Anne Rasmussen (current President of the Society for Ethnomusicology); Dr. Kevin Dawe (University of Kent), Dr Caroline Bithell (past Chair of BFE); and Dr. Jonathan Stock (University College Cork, Eire).
