Who Said YOU Could Label Dissent?

On Tuesday, 8 March 2011- Dr. Michael MacDonald and I will be giving a public lecture at the University of Alberta. As you can see on the poster, it’s called “Listening to Dissent: The Sound of Protest from Woody Guthrie to Rage Against the Machine.”

The talk is going to deal with the role of music in protest – and I don’t know if you’ve being reading the papers lately, but there’s been a heck of a lot of dissent against authority going on recently. So if you’re in the neighborhood, stop on by Tory 1-125 for a discussion on the attitude that musicians from Woody Guthrie to Joe Strummer to Joey Keithley to Tom Morello share.

Oh yeah, and there’ll be snacks!
