On April 4-6, 2014, the University of Pittsburgh will host the second of two conferences that constitute the Voices of Asian Modernities Project (VAMP), a consortium between the University of Pittsburgh, Leiden University, and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV). The aim of the conference is to properly historicize the artistic sounds, lyrical texts, visual images, and social lives of female performers in Asian popular music of the 20th and 21st centuries.
