Join members of HFCI at our annual meeting and program to hear guest speaker Dr. Matthew B. Karush, professor of modern Latin American history and chair of the Department of History at George Mason University. He has published extensively on labor politics and mass culture in Argentina.
His most recent book, Musicians in Transit: Argentina and the Globalization of Popular Music (Duke University Press, 2017), examines the transnational careers of seven of the most influential Argentine musicians of the twentieth century. The book reveals the way these artists navigated the economic and ideological structures of the global music business, in the process producing new musical forms and new identities. The research for this book was supported by a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
