The Cosquín National Folklore Festival and the Search for Argentine National Identity

This project will entail writing a book (during a two-semester sabbatical with half salary in 2005/06) about the role of music in the formation of national identity at the National Folklore Festival held in Cosquín, Argentina; the history and function of the event will also be addressed. Book data will be gathered by doing fieldwork and archival research with a Fulbright-Hays Fellowship during 2004/05, and findings will be related to theory regarding the relationship of festivals, music, and identity. It will be shown in the book how at the Cosquín festival identity is negotiated through music, how and why music is mediated, and how political, economic, and historical forces collide with local, national, and global musical interests.
