Happy Dog Takes on the World: Music as Political Diplomacy

Other Free

While international affairs seem dominated by the high politics of official representatives and ambassadors, a great deal of transnational interaction happens at the levels of citizens and collectives.

An increasingly popular form of cultural exchange and citizen diplomacy is expressed through music. What goes into these efforts? How do such exchanges shape the foreign artists as well as the American musicians? What is the future of this kind of advocacy and what are its limits?
