Performing Island Identities: Music, Dance, Folk Theatre, Storytelling and Performance Traditions

Gazimađusa (Famagusta), North Cyprus

19 - 21 November 2012

The deadline for abstracts for upcoming Island Dynamics event: Performing Island Identities: Music, Dance, Folk Theatre, Storytelling and Performance Traditions, which will be taking place in Gazimađusa (Famagusta), North Cyprus on 19-21 November 2012 is going to be closed on 15th March.

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.

The Center for Cyprus Studies of Eastern Mediterranean University and the Center for Island Studies of the Institute for Anthropological Research
(Croatia) are collaborating partners on this project.

The call for papers for this conference is out (http://www.islanddynamics.org/performingislandidentities/cfp.html),
