About this event

Noriko Manabe (Ethnomusicology, Musicology, and Music Theory, Temple University / Visiting Associate Professor, Stanford) presents the talk "Intertextuality in Protest Music." Intertextuality is pervasive in music of social movements across historical periods and geographies, capturing attention through a familiar song and recalling the social and political associations of the referenced lyric and music.

Noriko Manabe is associate professor of music studies at Temple University and visiting associate professor in East Asian Languages and Cultures at Stanford during 2021–22. Her research concerns music in social movements and popular music. Her book, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Protest Music after Fukushima, won the John Whitney Hall Prize from the Association for Asian Studies, the Book Award from the British Forum for Ethnomusicology, and honorable mention for the Alan Merriam Prize at the Society for Ethnomusicology. |
