In the borderland between song and speech. Vocal expressions in oral cultures. Håkan Lundström (published July 2022)
This project spans over several language and music settings in societies where oral transmission of culture dominates. The aim of the project is to gain increased knowledge through collaboration between researchers with different approaches, to develop an interdisciplinary method for analysis of such expressions and to use this method in an intercultural study including several language and music settings. A long-term aim is also to play a part in the revitalization of such oral traditions and to contribute to their sustainability. The project started in 2012 and is led by Håkan Lundström. It is financed by the Swedish Research Council.
