Two public lectures by Paolo Prato

The Department of Music Studies within the School of Performing Arts proudly presents Paolo Prato (LUISS Creative Business Center, Rome) in two public lectures at the University of Malta, Msida Campus.Lecture 1Tuesday 19 April 2016 from 13:30 till 15:00 in Room 127, Old Humanities Building (OH127), Department of Music StudiesReception and impact of Italian popular music abroad: stereotypes and national identityAlthough Italian music is mainly identified with opera, its popular music repertoire has found a place in the international arena for more than 150 years. It crossed the borders via the ambulant musicians who wandered all along Europe and the Americas in the late XIXth century, then it became a steady feature of the recording industry in its many versions. The lecture focuses on the globalization of songs, particularly on the import/export between the Anglophone market and a peripheral country: Italian popular music is viewed from the perspective of cover records, which provides quite a different story of the domestic product. Contrarily to the most obvious approach, which considers Italy as one of the countries which have been imitating foreign styles and translating English and American hits for decades, I will offer another, less known view, when Italian songs are covered by English speaking artists and become part of a worldwide shared culture. Music examples will include Neapolitan songs, dance songs, instrumentals, tarantellas and pop songs from the Sixties, which was the golden age of cover records in Italy.Lecture 2Tuesday 19 April 2016 from 17:00 till 19:00 in Room 124 Old Humanities Building (OH124), Department of Music StudiesFrom Charleston to Lindy Hop: black and white dances in the swing eraThe extraordinary raise of popular music in the years between the wars, involved a unprecedented discovery of the body and its energetic potential both in the human relationship sphere and in the entertainment industry. Doing away with traditional dance practices such as the waltz, the polka and the quadrille – associated with the Old World - the jazz dances which had appeared in the New World in the early XXth century brought along a wind of change that impacted on cinema, theatre and music. For the first time, Afro-American culture played a central role in shaping new nation's habits, something which was soon extended to the whole Western world. The lecture will trace a brief history of popular dance from the Jazz Age to the Swing Era, mainly focusing on musical theater and film musicals. Not a technical lecture on dance practices but an attempt at locating these dances at the center of cultural studies. We will watch footage from Fred Astaire to the Nicholas Brothers, from the Whitey Lindy hoppers to Judy Garland: a tale of effervescence which can help understand contemporary developments on the dancefloor.Paolo Prato teaches at the LUISS Creative Business Center in Rome and is author and speaker for Radio InBlu. He is international advisor for the Encyclopedia of Popular Music of the World and guest editor of a forthcoming volume on European genres. He is also on the editorial board of the journals Popular Music History and Musica/Realtà. His current interests concern issues of national identity, genre crossing, and the history of music technology. Among his books are Suoni in scatola: Sociologia della musica registrata (1999), Il treno dei desideri: Musica e ferrovia da Berlioz al rock (2003), White Christmas: L’America e la reinvenzione del Natale (2006), La musica italiana: Una storia sociale dall’Unità a oggi (2010), I canti di Natale: Da “Jingle Bells” a Lady Gaga (2013), and Le macchine della musica: L’orchestra in casa (2013).

Public workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals

The National Observatory for Living with Dignity, within the President's Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society, is holding a public workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), encouraging dialogue on the SDGs on a national level. The event will be held on Friday 22 April between 13:30 and 17:30, at the President’s Palace in Valletta. On 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight injustice and inequality, and combat climate change by 2030. The SDGs are intended to structure the policies and agendas of the United Nations’ member states for the next 15 years. The event will take the form of various experts giving a Pecha Kucha (20 X 20) presentation on a goal which falls under their area of expertise, and includes time for comments and reflections from participants. Pecha Kucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown, each for 20 seconds. This Pecha Kucha SDG workshop aims to offer a space for dialogue among all active stakeholders in the implementation of the SDGs, in particular policy and decision makers, and civil society organisations.  You are invited to attend and participate in this event. It will be an excellent opportunity to start reflecting on SDGs as they are linked to the wellbeing of our society, identifying both potential obstacles to the expected progress towards the goals, as well as possible solutions. A poster for the event is attached, and you are also welcome and encouraged to forward this invitation to anyone who may find the event of interest. Given that spaces are limited, you are kindly requested to send an email by no later than Tuesday 19 April, in order to reserve your place.
