Transnational Encounters

Music and Performance at the U.S.-Mexico Border

Edited by Alejandro L. Madrid

  • Offers a unique perspective on the diversity and complexity of borderland culture
  • Exploring transnational connections of the U.S.-Mexican border region, the collection redefines key theoretical notions such as "border," "nation," and "diaspora" from a range of disciplinary and multidisciplinary angles.
  • Covers a wide diversity of musical genres (indigenous, popular, folk, etc)
  • The interdisciplinary approach of the book as well as the wide range of its coverage would make it appealing to a large scholarly audience in disciplinary fields as well as less traditional and more multidisciplinary fields.
