The Royal Anthropological Institute Blacking Lecture
Knowledge Centre, The British Library
31 October 2019

Archiving World Music Cultures and the Impacts of Listening
Dr Janet Topp Fargion, British Library


Easy access to music and sound in the digital world presents new
challenges to archives such as the British Library. How far should they
be ‘gatekeepers’ when it comes to world and ethnographic recordings,
particularly when people from the cultures represented have very diverse
expectations and uneven access to technologies?

Draws on historic recordings from Africa, Asia and South America, the
2019 Royal Anthropological Insitute Blacking Lecture is given by Janet
Topp Fargion, Lead Curator, World and Traditional Music at the British
Library Sound Archive

The annual Royal Anthropological Institute Blacking Lecture is named in
honour of esteemed ethnomusicologist and anthropologist John
Blacking (1928-1990).

This event is in collaboration with the British Library.
