Sabine Feisst, professor of musicology, delivered a keynote talk at the annual meeting of the Finnish Musicological and Ethnomusicological Societies hosted by the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, in April.

The talk was titled “U.S.-Mexico Border Chords and Discords: Perspectives on the Changing Sonic Ecologies in the American Southwest.” Feisst discussed examples of activist creative placemaking at the U.S.-Mexico border, whose aural space has undergone dramatic changes prompted by increased border fortification.
