The Intellectual and Material Legacies of Late Medieval Sephardic Judaism: An Interdisciplinary Approach

Year 2008
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
From the 13th to the 15th centuries, the Jews of the Iberian Peninsula (Sepharad) lived side by side with Christians and Muslims. Although persistent tensions existed between these three groups, their members also participated in a common artistic, intellectual and scientific endeavour that produced the requisite conditions for the dawn of the European Renaissance. The worldviews of all three communities revolved around their sacred texts—the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and the Qur’an. This project will take as a focal point Judaism and its sacred text, and will explore its role and impact in late medieval society at large. The project will coordinate the research of a group of young scholars doing groundbreaking work in the field, all sharing a cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary perspective. As a group, we will bring under analysis a wide range of concepts—the production of sacred texts as objects, the history of their cataloguing and preservation, the multiple and conflicting interpretations of their contents, their role as social agents that fostered coexistence or created exclusions, their impact in literature and the arts, their relationship with medieval science, and their relationship to Muslim and Christian Scriptures. The project has a special relevance for today’s multicultural and pluralistic Europe, as it can help to minimize fundamentalist readings of the sacred texts, bring about a greater understanding of the historical roots of modern intercultural conflict and, ultimately, contribute to the development of non essentialist theories of race and culture.

Neurodidactics of Performing Arts: The Impact of Drama Teaching on Second Language Acquisition

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'Since the 1990s, Educational Neuroscience has become an emerging field of research which studies cognitive brain functions (thinking, memory, attention, emotions) and interfaces with the educational environment with the aim of improving teaching and learning. Simultaneously, 'Drama Teaching', a teaching methodology based on performing arts introduced in the 1970s, is now generating interest, especially in Foreign Language Learning. This research project will investigate aspects of cognition involved in the language learning process and it will analyse how Drama Teaching dynamics can impact language learning and proficiency. In order to define Drama Teaching as a methodology which involves the brain-mind-body dimension and fosters development of the learner as a whole person, a cognitive perspective will be adopted in relation to issues of a) embodied cognition, b) role of emotions in learning, c) impact of context and experience on learning d) cross-cultural identity process, development and awareness. Theoretical scientific investigation will be conducted on cognitive aspects relevant to learning, followed by the study and observation of dramatization practices. Development of curriculum and course implementation will follow. Particular attention will be given to the assessment of learning results and proficiency levels, as well as to the cognitive and emotional factors. The inter-disciplinary perspective adopted by this study is aimed at contributing to the debate on creative, interactive Foreign Language Education taking place in Europe and in the world. The scope is to contribute to the multi-disciplinary inquiries of Educational Neuroscience by elaborating a neuroscientifically grounded theory of Drama Teaching which gives educators guidelines to expand the range of teaching possibilities in accordance with the principles of Learning/Teaching of the “Common European Framework of Reference for Languages”.

A quantitative analysis of the micro-dynamics of persecution using biographic data of the Jews of Munich (1933-1945)

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project addresses the micro-dynamics of persecution during the Shoah. The project’s first main objective is the creation of a new and unique dataset based on biographical data of all 13,500 Jews who lived in Munich between 1933 and 1945, and historical tax and forced divestment files which will be digitalised at the beginning of the project. The second main objective is to use this novel data set and state-of-the-art econometric methods to analyse (i) the role of social status in the exposure to expropriation, (ii) the reaction of victims to expropriation, (iii) the roles of socio-economic characteristics in the success to migrate, and (iv) the roles of socio-economic characteristics in the timing and probability of deportation. This innovative approach is complementary to the mainly qualitative Holocaust literature and will fill persistent research gaps in Holocaust research in particular and conflict research in general. The project will be realised at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Sweden, and feature collaborations with the Staatsarchiv München and the Institute for Contemporary History, Germany. SIPRI is a leading institute in peace research and exhibits a strong record in the analysis of security, violent conflict and genocide. The project will be supervised by SIPRI’s current director Prof. Tilman Brück, who is a global expert in the empirical analysis of the micro-dynamics of violent conflict. The project involves a comprehensive training plan which will accelerate the researcher’s scientific performance and contribute to the achievement of her career goals in academia. This inter-European, inter-disciplinary project is expected to meliorate European research excellence and produce significant outreach within an international multi-disciplinary scientific audience as well as the general public. It will allow follow-up investigations through the generated data set and will spark societal discourse and self-reflection.

Fair and Consistent Border Controls? A Critical, Multi-methodological and Interdisciplinary Study of Asylum Adjudication in Europe

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
‘Consistency’ is regularly cited as a desirable attribute of border control, but it has received little critical social scientific attention. This inter-disciplinary project, at the inter-face between critical human geography, border studies and law, will scrutinise the consistency of European asylum adjudication in order to develop richer theoretical understanding of this lynchpin concept. It will move beyond the administrative legal concepts of substantive and procedural consistency by advancing a three-fold conceptualisation of consistency – as everyday practice, discursive deployment of facts and disciplinary technique. In order to generate productive intellectual tension it will also employ an explicitly antagonistic conceptualisation of the relationship between geography and law that views law as seeking to constrain and systematise lived space. The project will employ an innovative combination of methodologies that will produce unique and rich data sets including quantitative analysis, multi-sited legal ethnography, discourse analysis and interviews, and the findings are likely to be of interest both to academic communities like geographers, legal and border scholars and to policy makers and activists working in border control settings. In 2013 the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) was launched to standardise the procedures of asylum determination. But as yet no sustained multi-methodological assessment of the claims of consistency inherent to the CEAS has been carried out. This project offers not only the opportunity to assess progress towards harmonisation of asylum determination processes in Europe, but will also provide a new conceptual framework with which to approach the dilemmas and risks of inconsistency in an area of law fraught with political controversy and uncertainty around the world. Most fundamentally, the project promises to debunk the myths surrounding the possibility of fair and consistent border controls in Europe and elsewhere.

Strategies and Structures. A multi-disciplinary study of the preconditions for entrepreneurship among immigrants in Sweden.

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project analyses how changes in policies and regulations affect conditions and opportunities for small business development in different industries over time, and how self-employed persons act in response to changes in opportunity structures. We study strategies of growth and survival within specific industries and markets, but also transitions of self-employment across industries and types of markets. The project will contribute new knowledge through a systematic and coherent longitudinal and spatial investigation of the dynamics of self-employment among immigrants in Sweden. The project systematically applies and develops instruments from recent international research on ethnic minority businesses (EMB). Theory in the field is developed through the integration of entrepreneurship theory and new theoretical contributions from EMB research. Theoretical perspectives on strategies and self-employed as actors is combined with theory on opportunity structures (the framework of ?mixed embeddedness?). Methodologically, the approach implies coordinated analyses of different dimensions on different levels, using a combination of policy studies, case studies and quantitative analyses.

Contested Cities Revisited: a multidisciplinary, multi-scale analysis of urban space

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'The proposed project’s meta-objectives are twofold, first; from a theoretical perspective the starting point of the project is the suggestion that rather than limiting the 'extreme divided’ city label to a selected number of contested places, there is an increasing need to broaden the category itself in order to deepen the understanding of contested urbanism across the spectrum. Secondly, to construct an innovative interdisciplinary research method connecting the long overdue qualitative and quantitative divide within urban segregation research (Vertovec 2006). Within this discussion, there is a still significant lacuna as to how researchers and policymakers themselves conceptualize and prioritize the socially and politically contentious issues of urban segregation in different cities and the impact of urban space on social outcomes (Vaughan 2007). This research project suggests there is a need to re-think labels and concepts attributed to cities and neighborhoods, to better adapt planning policy and practice to ethnic minorities and migrants in an ever more fractured urban reality. Following a broad assessment of 'urban segregation' the research will focus on two nations with diverse forms of contested urbanism with the aim of 'learning through differences, rather than seeking out similarities' (Robinson 2011); namely Sweden (known for its comprehensive welfare system) and Israel (known for its ethnically based policies); selecting four case study cities (two from each country) with high levels of ethnic minorities for further in-depth analysis. With the aim of establishing a multi-level multidisciplinary comparative framework (engaging spatial and qualitative analysis); the project will integrate three main scales of investigation: (1) the nation state role in planning for urban segregation, (2) urban segregation at the city scale, and (3) the role of local community and civil society in, and their perception of, these urban processes.'

TRAvelling Ceramic Technologies as markers of human mobility in the Aegean

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The main aim of TRACT is to demonstrate that the informed and interdisciplinary study of ancient pottery can shed new light on past human mobility. Based on the premise that the spread of technology involved in pottery making requires the physical movement of people, the project will adopt an inter-disciplinary methodology designed to investigate instances of technological transfer and hence mobility of potters. The methodology comprises macroscopic study of the vessel-forming methods in combination with petrographic and chemical analysis of pottery and raw material samples. An important addition is the study of modern instances of potters’ mobility in the Aegean. Altogether, this represents a novel approach, which will be employed to a specific study focused on potters from the island of Aegina during the Late Bronze Age. TRACT will investigate the spread of a particular pottery tradition developed on the island of Aegina along the Euboean Gulf, an important corridor that facilitated movement of goods and people. Furthermore, the chosen case study will aim to shed light on the underpinnings of such movement, its duration, scale, as well as interaction of potters with new landscapes and receiving communities. Therefore, TRACT will contribute to the current debate on mobility by presenting thoroughly researched case study of craftsmen mobility, and elaborate a coherent methodology that can be universally applied. The choice of the Fitch Laboratory of the British School at Athens as a hosting institution will not only enable a high-level training through research but also, due to the supervisor’s interest in mobility of potters’ mobility and previous research on pottery production on the island of Aegina, it constitutes a perfect match that will provide a substantial boost to career opportunities for the experienced researcher and strengthen the position of the Laboratory as a centre of excellence for the study of craftspeople mobility.

Abstract
The Study Group will examine how migration and consequent ethno-cultural diversity have been problematized and responded to within the health systems of Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada. The focus is on maternity services and reproductive outcomes. Preliminary work will establish a conceptual framework that has pertinence to the three countries of focus, a methodological approach with particular attention to achieving meaningful comparison and operational feasibility across settings, as well as an operational structure that enables both inter-disciplinary and cross-national collaboration and active involvement of policy-makers, practitioners and users/consumers.

Populist rebellion against modernity in 21st-century Eastern Europe: neo-traditionalism and neo-feudalism

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
POPREBEL is an inter-disciplinary consortium of researchers focused on explaining and contextualising the recent rise of populism in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). While populism is a phenomenon that has by now emerged in almost every democracy, we believe that regional and cultural-historical dimensions need to be considered in order to improve not only scholarly knowledge, but also policy recommendations. It is urgent for Western Europeans to look into the CEE mirror, just as it is urgent for the CEE region to understand itself. To this end, we will create a typology of populism’s various manifestations, reconstruct trajectories of its growth and decline, investigate its causes, interpret its meanings, diagnose its consequences, and propose policy solutions. Our focus is on CEE, but we engage in comparisons with populisms elsewhere, particularly Western Europe. While scholars from different disciplines have looked at populism, we argue that the full potential of interdisciplinary research has not been achieved yet. We draw on data and models from various disciplines and combine them into a rich study of forces at play. In addition to established methods of economics, sociology, and cultural studies, at the heart of our approach is a novel methodology whose essence is a large-scale, Europe-wide, multi-lingual online conversation. This is a listening exercise; its aim is a deep understanding of everyday life in Europe challenged by the rise of populism. The method to process this unique ethnographic material is semantic social network analysis. POPREBEL relies on foresight/future studies, deep involvement with activists, policy makers, and civil society actors to boost the immune system of European democracy. We develop scenarios and share them with all interested parties to reflect, in public debate, on how well they fit both in the CEE region and the rest of Europe. Our focus is not just scholarly; the project serves as a platform for mutual learning.

RICHE – a platform and inventory for child health research in Europe

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The European Commission and other funding agencies make a large investment in child health research. The health of our children is satisfactory, but there are serious concerns, for example, obesity, mental health, alcohol abuse, and sexuality. We know that there are strong links between the health of young people and their social inclusion and level of education. Our objective is to establish a sustainable network for researchers, funders, policy makers, advocates and young people in Europe, to support collaboration in developing the future of child health research. We will produce an inventory of research, and reports, on gaps in research, and on roadmaps for the future of research. Our co-ordination will establish a unique, open, multi-lingual platform for child health research. This will embrace the full multi-disciplinary diversity of European research, while addressing fragmentation by making the parts visible, and supporting multi-lingual input and searching. We will develop formal processes for finding gaps in research, and for making roadmaps. We will use these to find current gaps, and make roadmaps for the future, including for the necessary research capacity. We will promote our work and our results in a series of meetings open to researchers and other stakeholders. Our consortium is a multi-disciplinary team, with great experience in doing innovative child health research in Europe, in developing, and in delivering child health strategies at national, and European level. This mixture of skills and experience gives us a unique perspective on the strategic problems at European level. We have an Expert Group, including young people, advocates, and researchers who will support us. RICHE will support the development and implementation of child health research strategies, and the use of evidence for child health action. These in turn will support innovative research, improve social policy for children, and so improve the quality of life of European children.

"Transnational Migration, Citizenship and the Circulation of Rights and Responsibilities"

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'This ITN TRANSMIC project brings together a group of universities, think-tanks, institutes, practitioners and high-level officials that all share a long-term interest in migration policies and citizenship issues and who have extensive academic and/or practical expertise in this field. Their inter- and multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience is pooled with the main objective of improving the European and international career opportunities of young researchers by offering them a coherent academic training programme complemented with a professional skills training programme and by exposing them to experience on the work-floor through an internship at a think-tank, a consultancy or a law firm, all specialized in the issue of migration and citizenship issues. In addition the network will also be a catalyst for intensive cooperation and exchange of best practices amongst the participating partners and promote interaction and fertilization between academia, professional organizations, representatives of European institutions and member States as well as policy makers in various countries of research all around the globe with an interest in transnational migration and citizenship questions. Given the intensity of the cooperation, it is to be expected that the network will also provide a solid basis for cooperation and interaction beyond ITN. The focus of the research is the rapidly-evolving field of transnational migration and citizenship addressed from the perspective of circularity of rights and responsibilities. The in-depth and inter-/multi-disciplinary study of the concept of transnational migration, citizenship and related problems concerning the mobility of migrants from a comparative and rights-based perspective is extremely topical in the light of the current political and academic debates concerning circular migration, mobility partnerships, high- and low skilled migration. These debates are directly connected with the concepts and positions taken towards acquired rights, citizenship and nationality. These research issues also contribute to our broader understanding of the origins, evolution and effects of migration movements for the host as well as the home societies.'

Science and Society: From a History of the “Emotional Images of DNA” to a Set of Multidisciplinary Actions for Disseminating Good Social Values in Europe

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Joining Life Long Learning, Sociology of Science, contemporary Genetics, and the recommendations of the Science and Society European Action Plan published by the EU in 2002, this proposed project revolves around society’s image of DNA. Society has many ideas regarding the genetic code: DNA as guarantor of social positions; DNA as a mold from which cloning is possible; DNA as repository of human qualities, etc. Comparing those ideas with the recent advancements in the life sciences we find sometimes a gap between science and society’s convictions that can hinder the scientific progress and intercultural integration of Europe. The theoretical objectives of the proposal aim to outline an history of DNA ideas present in society through an analysis of cultural elements (scientific knowledge, emotions, evocations, etc.) and of channels (theater, literature, divulgation, etc.) that contribute to their formation and diffusion. The practical actions give rise to a permanent interdisciplinary workshop, aimed at creating “cultural objects” that use narrative languages to spread a realistic and positive idea of the relationship DNA/CULTURE. This experience will allow the applicant to advance in his career becoming the coordinator of the workshop and earn the professorship on themes discussed in this proposal at the Università di Catania (Italy).

Legal Cultures and Literary Trials in the Age of Goethe. The Vehmic Court Motif in Interdisciplinary and Comparative Perspective

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project aims at a first systematic and in-depth investigation of the motif of the Vehmic Court – a medieval secret tribunal – in German literature of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Despite the remarkable popularity of the subject, little research has yet been conducted to define the epistemological framework of its development. By dismissing the Vehme as a “trivial” trope, scholars have not grasped its broader relevance for the culture of the Saddle Period around 1800, an age of transitions and paradigm shifts in society and politics, but also in literature, historiography and the legal system. Through a close-reading analysis and interpretation of a corpus of around twenty plays and novels on the topic, most of which will be examined for the first time, Dr Vecchiato will clarify the reasons for the flourishing of Vehmic Court fictions in the Age of Goethe. By situating the texts within the cultural and historical horizon in which they were produced, he will shed new light on the interactions between popular and canonical literature, Law and Literature as well as Literature and History in that period. Furthermore, he will explore the cross-cultural dimension of the topic, by studying its reception in British literature. The project is a natural outgrowth of the researcher’s interest in the literature of the Age of Goethe; at the same time it grants him the possibility to acquire new competences and multidisciplinary knowledge, which will be crucial for the development of a broader research on the literary representation of trial scenes in German literature. Besides offering outstanding intellectual exchange and the possibility to establish international collaborations, a MSC-IF at King’s College London will help Dr Vecchiato further enhance his scholarly profile and track record of publications. Through teaching, dissemination and outreach activities, he will be able to reach full professional maturity and to generate impacts in and beyond academia.

Statistical and Computational Genetics Tools for Investigation of Human History from Large Genetic Datasets

Year 2007
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This proposal concerns the development of new statistical and computations methods for drawing inferences from genetic data. As a member of the Genographic Consortium, the author has access to both vast amounts of genetic data, and an array of scientific collaborators worldwide, seeking to answer questions regarding history of the human species, ancient migrations, etc. through analysis of genetic data. Some of the work already performed includes a method for mutation probability estimation from large datasets, and a paper on analysis of a large mtDNA database. A number of exciting challenges for the future work are discussed. Once the author joins the faculty at Tel Aviv University, this research will contribute to ongoing international collaboration, to inter-disciplinary collaboration within the University and to increasing our understanding about the past --- and future --- of our species, and the manner in which people world wide are connected to each other as members of one extended family.

Abstract
The starting point of this multi-disciplinary research programme is the vertiginous growth in international migration and the recent “refugee crisis” in Europe, as well as the ever-present questions of social and economic integration of recent refugees and other immigrants. The programme aims to examine the challenges and opportunities created by novel initiatives that aim to support labour market integration of refugees and other immigrants who have been granted residency in Sweden – including the problems of coordination and organisation between the plethora of initiatives. The research will be conducted within a practice-based approach to organising (Gherardi & Nicolini, 2002; Nicolini, 2012) and aims to produce novel knowledge to facilitate the establishment of more sustainable processes and practices for integrating refugees and other immigrants in the labour market.

Multidisciplinary modelling approaches to understand harmful algal blooms dynamics

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) cause large economic losses every year in aquaculture and fisheries worldwide, due to shellfish toxicity and mass fish mortality. Understanding HABs dynamics requires an integrated strategy that includes not only observation but also modelling. Models are essential tools toward defining the complexity of HAB events and forecasting their occurrence (e.g., bloom initiation, intensity, duration, and decline). Coupling physical effects (turbulence, shear, advection) and biological behaviour (migration, physiological adaptation) holds the key to understand HABs dynamics. However, biological models are still at basic stages due to the lack of knowledge of the life history parameters and behaviour patterns of HABs species. In this project, we propose the development of an expert system, using non-linear techniques, which will include existing and newly acquired knowledge of the behaviour of HABs species in the study areas. This expert system will account for the physiological condition and behaviour of individual organisms in a Lagrangian particle-tracking model. Advection and diffusion used to force the IBM will be obtained from simulations of coupled physical models This multidisciplinary modelling approach will be a very useful tool to elucidate the mechanisms involved in HABs dynamics through the joint effects of organism behaviour and physical forcing.

Integration of Machine Translation Paradigms

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Machine Translation (MT) is a highly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field since it is approached from the point of view of engineering, computer science, informatics, statistics and linguists. Unfortunately, the cooperation and interaction among these fields in relation to MT technologies is still very low. The goal of this research project is to approach the different profiles in the MT community by providing a new integrated MT paradigm which mainly includes linguistic technologies and statistical algorithms. Basically, our research will be focused on the problem of dynamically integrating the two most popular MT paradigms: the rule-based and the statistical-based. We will use linguistic technologies developed either for the rule-based MT systems or other natural language processing tasks into statistical MT systems. Linguistic technologies include: bilingual dictionaries, transfer rules, statistical parsing, word sense disambiguation, morphological and syntactic analysis. The new paradigm will provide solutions to current MT challenges such as unknown words, reordering and semantic ambiguities. The project will focus on the three most spoken languages in the world: Chinese, Spanish and English; and all translation combinations among them. These language pairs do not only involve many economical and cultural interests, but they also include some of the most relevant MT challenges such as morphological, syntactic and semantic variations.

Risk and MigrationA Transnational History of Romanian Migration to Western Europe (2002-2013)

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The liberalization of border controls following the breakdown of the Europe's communist regimes led to important flows of East-West migration. Western Europeans, fearing a literal invasion of Central and Eastern European immigrants, increasingly interpreted this new-found mobility as being fraught with risk. This research project will examine the history of Romanian migration to France and Italy from 2002 until the end of 2013 from the perspective of risk. It will analyse how evaluations of and responses to risk shape the migration process. The first step of this project will be to understand how fear of migration influences political responses and regulatory measures. The second step will investigate how this sense of fear developed and evolved within French, Italian and Romanian societies. It will also analyse how risk perception impacts migrants’ relationships with the host society. Focussing on the migrants’ own perceptions of their mobility, the third step of the project will examine how they respond to risk. An emphasis will be placed on young adults. The inter-disciplinary perspective adopted in this study will provide a more complete history of Romanian migration during the last decade. Drawing on empirical research, this study will focus on the connections that could be established between European citizens. The final objective is to demonstrate the relevance of ‘risk’ in understanding the migration process.

Music, Digitization, Mediation: Towards Interdisciplinary Music Studies

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Music is rapidly being transformed by digital technologies; it is in the vanguard of the changes to contemporary cultures and cultural economies afforded by digitization, and is widely seen as a test case of digitization’s effects. Yet the academic music disciplines have not responded with research on these fundamental developments. This project, by combining two innovative interdisciplinary components, aims systematically to advance the state of contemporary music research, while contributing to social and media theory. It will be the first research programme to analyse comprehensively the range of interrelated transformations in music and musical experience wrought by digital technologies. The first element of the project is a comparative programme of ethnographic studies examining transformations in creative, performance and improvisation practices, the nature of music as a cultural object, new aesthetic forms, altered modes of musical consumption and circulation, and changing industry and institutional structures. Given the ease of transnational distribution of digitized musics, research will also follow certain genres as they circulate among diasporic groups. These and related issues will be studied in five countries, each intrinsically significant as well as yielding instructive comparisons between them: the UK, Cuba, Kenya, India and Turkey. The emphasis in each ethnography will be on analyzing the embedded nature of digital musical practices in local cultural, social, economic and political conditions. Second, on the basis of this programme, the project aims to advance contemporary music research by developing an interdisciplinary theory and methodology which progresses beyond the current state of the field. Music research has been divided between disciplines such as musicology and music analysis which address the musical object and centre on art musics, and sociological and anthropological approaches which privilege music’s social, institutional and discursive forms and focus primarily on popular and vernacular musics. The present project bridges these divisions by expounding an innovative theory and methodology focused on music’s mediation, one that integrates recent elements of social, anthropological and media theory. Moreover it addresses music’s digital transformations across the spectrum of contemporary musics: art, popular and vernacular, commercial and non-commercial. Given that music’s core properties – mediation, performance, improvisation, affect, complex materialities – are also core concerns of contemporary social theory, the research will in turn contribute to ‘musicalising’ social theory. The project aims to have far-reaching impacts, creating a field of comparative studies of digital music cultures while reconfiguring the interdisciplinary foundations of music research.
