We are pleased to announce a new upcoming Island Dynamics event:
Performing Island Identities: Music, Dance, Folk Theatre, Storytelling and
Performance Traditions, which will be taking place in Gazimağusa
(Famagusta), North Cyprus on 19-21 November 2012. Performing Island
Identities will explore music, dance, storytelling, folk theatre, and
other performance traditions past and present in island communities
worldwide. We will place special focus on the role of performance
traditions in forming and maintaining identity. The conference will bring
together folklorists, anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, and others to
consider the role of islandness in the development of traditions. We are
delighted to have the noted folklorist and musician Alan Jabbour acting as
keynote speaker.

(Croatia) are collaborating partners on this project.
