Conference and knowledge exchange at the International Film Festival Rotterdam

From 29 January to 1 February 2013, the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) will receive an international group of music scholars and professionals as part of the Re/Soundings-POPID conference and Knowledge Exchange Events during the International Film Festival Rotterdam.



Scholars in the Netherlands, England, Austria and Slovenia have researched the relationships between popular music, cultural memory and identity and local/national cultural heritage based on archival information and interviews with both music industry professionals and the public. During the conference, the project partners and other scholars from the field will present their findings on this theme.
The conference is organised as part of the HERA research project Popular Music Heritage, Cultural Memory and Cultural Identity(POPID), which is directed by Susanne Janssen, Professor of Media and Culture at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC).

Organised in conjunction with the European jazz research project Rhythm Changes and the International Film Festival Rotterdam, a series of Knowledge Exchange Events will be held as a complement to the conference, providing opportunities for colleagues from the music industry and heritage institutions, students and the public to exchange knowledge.

During the Re/Soundings event on 29 and 30 January, expert panels will show film fragments as part of discussions of the themes 'Jazz and National Identities', 'Music and Countercultures' and 'Popular Music Heritage and DIY Preservationism'.

Attendees can also visit free of charge the Scopitone CafÉ, organised as part of the IFFR theme programme 'Sound Stages'. From 26 January to 2 February, a music film or documentary will be shown each evening in the 'Kleine Zaal' of the Rotterdam Schouwburg, followed by an audience discussion.

The entire programme is available on the website of the POPID research project. You can register as a visitor by email: popid@remove-this.eshcc.eur.nl.
