In a digital and divided America, can music still be a force for social justice?

Sharp Notes, Sharp Thoughts, the Jandoli Institute’s music and social justice project, will resume in October at the New York State Communication Association conference in Callicoon, New York.

The association has accepted the institute’s proposal to conduct a panel discussion titled In a Digital and Divided America, Can Music Still be a Force for Social Justice?

The panel will present the results of a six-month project incubated at the Jandoli Institute. Scholars, musicians and journalists came together to delve into the ways music allies with social justice. The goal of the project was to explore the connection between music and various progressive movements from an interdisciplinary perspective.

For the presentation, each participant will speak briefly about a connection between music and social justice. A discussion will follow. In keeping with the conference theme, panelists will explore how music can continue to be a force for social justice in an interconnected, yet politically divided, society.

The conference will take place from Oct. 15-17 at the Villa Roma Resort & Conference Center.
