The interdisciplinary essays gathered in this volume explore how music audiences and markets are imagined in a globalized scenario, how music reflects and reflects upon new understandings of citizenship beyond the nation-state, and how music works as a site of resistance against globalization. Focusing on the Americas, they cast a new light on the role of music production, distribution, and consumption beyond the traditional paradigms of musical discourse.
