The Nordic countries:
Academic network for reseaching music censorship
|Over 40 professors, university researchers and students from the Nordic countries have established a network to provide an informed knowledge of the role of culture and music in a global world, and of the practices which cause restrictions and silencing of targeted musicians.
The idea was discussed at the Freemuse conference in Istanbul in November 2006 among a group of university scholars who participated in a session entitled ‘Researching music censorship’. Four years later, in October 2010, that session title became the name of a new academic researcher’s network: Researching Music Censorship (RMC) which has more than 40 members from four Nordic countries – Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark – including researchers as well as PhD students.
The first international RMC workshop took place on 5-6 May 2011, where 24 reseachers and PhD students took part in two days of talks and discussions in Copenhagen, Denmark. The next meeting, with a theme of Gender and race, will be in Lund, Sweden, on 29-30 September 2011. On 26-27 April 2012, a conference will be held in Bergen over the theme: Censorship and self censorship (theory and ethics).
Research the role of music
RMC has its secretariat at the University of Copenhagen and is founded by Nordforsk.
