Beginning in February 2019, widespread anti-government protests have taken place throughout towns and cities across Algeria. These have coalesced into Hirak, a political movement calling for democracy and greater social equality. Inevitably, singing and chanting have become integral to the protest. Dr Wilford will explore the ways in which music and sound have helped to shape Hirak, with particular focus upon the negotiation of Algerian public and private space through sonic practices.
