Music – as sound and as a basic fact of human life. Nepal – and especially the Kathmandu Valley – from ethnic, political, and of course musical perspectives. Cultural (musical) participation. The economy of music and cultural materialism. Sweden’s – informal – musical life. Globalisation, cultural flows, cultural hybridization, transnationalism and diaspora.
These are some of the themes you’ll find addressed here.
On this website, my academic writings – most of them in English – on these and related themes are organized in three major (but overlapping) areas. Whenever possible the texts can be downloaded. More popular forms of writing and media productions – mostly in Swedish – are listed separately.
