Shannon Garland
Postdoctoral scholar, Ethnomusicology

Music of Brazil

Examining media circulation, band touring, and live performance in the context of emerging music industry organizations, Garland’s work addresses affect, aesthetics and sociality in the production of differential economies of value. Her book project, For the Love: Independent Music, Affect, and Labor in Brazil and Beyond, traces the interrelationships between cultural finance, social networking, and live performance, to show how aesthetic judgement forms through both global political economy and the intimate politics of social relationships. Dr. Garland serves as the 2017-2019 chair of the Economic Ethnomusicology Special Interest Group within the Society of Ethnomusicology.

Transnational circulation of independent (indie) rock/pop between the global north and Latin America, particularly Brazil, Argentina, and Chile; music and nationalism; urban governance; social movements; East Asian traditional and popular musics.
