DISCO! An Interdisciplinary Conference

Tags: , , , ,

From 21-23 June 2018, the University of Sussex organises an interdisciplinary international conference to examine and expand debates on disco. From its origins as a New York City subculture and its transition into the mainstream to its subsequent lives across international scenes, disco poses pivotal questions about the entanglements of art, industry, identity, and community. Through talks, panels, discussions, and performances, the conference hopes to explore disco as a tentacular phenomenon that reaches across multiple sites of production and consumption. Keynote presentations will be given by Melissa Blanco Borelli (Royal Holloway, University of London) and Tim Lawrence (University of East London). For more information, visit the conference website.
