About

Investigating the intersections of music, the state, human rights and justice, Soundscapes of Detention explores (ab)uses of music and sound in situations of detention as means of repression, ‘re-education’, but also of survival, resilience, and therapy. Created by musicologist Anna Papaeti, it features her research project Music in Detention in (Post) Civil-War Greece (1947–1957). MUSDEWAR is currently underway at the Department of Social Anthropology of Panteion University, Athens. It is funded by a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship (2017–2019; Horizon 2020). The website includes publications, news, events, a calendar as well as a blog with commentary on current issues and developments on the topics in question.
