Leon, Spain Study Abroad VIRTUAL Info Session

January 23 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Exploring histories of resistance and resilience in contemporary social justice movements in Spain and the Spanish language diaspora through the lens of participatory dance and music communities, this program based at the UW Léon Center will examine how practices in sound create spaces of belonging. Students will connect with a feminist immigrant justice organization in the Basque Country, participate in music and dance workshops, and culminate with a community music Fandango celebration in Madrid that brings together community and dance from the Americas. Via theoretical frameworks drawing on decolonization, trauma-informed theory, transnational feminism, and neoliberalism/ globalization, this program will explore gender and race in a variety of musical traditions, genres, and scenes.
