Jonathan W. Stone (University of Utah)

The folk songs of John and Alan Lomax both reified and transformed the trajectory of American convention, especially around issues of race. Jonathan Stone plays examples from their archival fieldwork to demonstrate how they embraced and pushed against tradition. Registrants will receive a playlist and advanced access to excerpts from Stone’s forthcoming book.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Conventions.”

This event was published on August 4, 2021.
