Singing Across Divides: Music and Intimate Politics in Nepal

November 13, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Moore Hall 319

Dr. Anna Stirr, Associate Professor of Asian Studies, will speak on her new book. An ethnographic study of music, performance, migration, and circulation, Singing Across Divides examines how forms of love and intimacy are linked to changing conceptions of political solidarity and forms of belonging, through the lens of Nepali dohori song. Dohori is improvised, dialogic singing, performed between men and women, with a primary focus on romantic love. The book tells the story of dohori’s relationship with changing ideas of Nepal as a nation-state in the aftermath of Nepal’s ten-year civil war.
