Event Description:

MUSIC AND THE ARAB SPRING:  The “Arab Spring” of 2011 not only signaled a massive upheaval in the political structure of several countries in the region, but also brought into focus a number of emerging social dynamics.  In Dr. Ullaby's talk, he will examine the role of music in the Arab revolutions as a way to explore the importance of mass media, demographic shifts, and the role of civil society in the Arab world.  While music proved to be critical in the creation of narratives for mobilizing support for the revolutions, several Arab pop stars were vocally counter-revolutionary, which highlights the close relationship between the popular music industry and the government in the region.  He will also examine how music has been used in the aftermath of the revolutions to help define the Arab Spring’s significance.  

The Price Music Center Lecture Series has become the way diverse cultures and their musics are brought to our department, our campus, and our students. Second only to CenterStage, the PMC Lecture Series is The Way The Arts are able to show Diversity Initiatives to the greater community. More and more, the value of the PMC Lecture Series is proving to be an extraordinary gift to this university and its students.
