‘No Radical Critique Ever Comes from the Centre’ – Interview with Professor Bruce Johnson

Interjú Bruce Johnsonnal

Az interjút készítette:

The idea of making this interview came from our discussions on the emerging field of diasporic jazz research to which Johnson’s contributions in the past two decades are of huge significance. The interview covers a wide range of topics such as the differences  between popular music and jazz, cultural globalization, and the centre-periphery positions in academia, especially regarding some institutional aspects and challenges related to the importance of researching diasporic jazz practices. The publication of the interview is conceptually related to the Replika Journal’s thematic issue (101–102) on jazz studies, therefore it aims to contribute the Hungarian emancipation of the discipline.

Released: Replika 112, 153–164.
