Jann Pasler (University of California, San Diego) has been awarded a 2.5 million-euro Advanced Grant from the European Research Council for her project, The Sound of Empire in 20th-Century Colonial Cultures: Rethinking History through Music. A five- year project, it is predicated on new conceptual and historical models for studying how musical life and sound media influenced, mediated, and brought meaning to colonial life. Pasler’s research focuses on six colonial cities from Senegal and Morocco in Africa, to French Indochina (present-day Vietnam).
