Popakademie Talks
On Tuesday, 04.06.2024 at 7 pm, Prof:In Dr:In Kristine Ringsager will be a guest at the Popakademie. Ringsager is a professor at the Faculty of Arts and Cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen. Her research focuses on the anthropological study of music, with an emphasis on racialized and gendered cultures and infrastructures and the use of music in processes of social change. She is the leader of the research project Gendering Music Matter (2022-2024), which investigates gender inequalities in the Danish popular music industry. A particular focus is on how the infrastructure of the popular music industry influences the experiences and navigation of women and gender minoritized music makers in pursuing their careers in the field. She was previously involved in the projects Music as Social Intervention and Contemporary Music from the Middle East (2020-2022). Ringsager completed her PhD on the Danish-language rap scene with a focus on citizenship, migration politics, experienced otherness and social transformation.
