  • Transnational Blues

    Sitting On Top of the World: A Transnational History of the Blues

    Wednesday, 03 November 2021 18:00 to 19:00

    Blues music is inextricably linked to African American experiences of slavery, segregation, and the structures of white supremacy, but the style has also spread around the world. Existing histories treat the blues’ international circulation as unexpected and often inauthentic. Lawrence Davies presents an alternative view, treating the genre’s international circulation as central to its development and meanings. He examines blues musicians’ experiences of travel, and reflects on how blues has responded to global questions of class, race, solidarity, and exploitation. This lecture accompanies the Special Collections and Archives' Blues Off the Record project to catalogue and make accessible the Paul Oliver Archive of African American Music.
