For its IAMM debut at the 2022 conference, IAMM’s new Music and Intercultural Diversity (MINd) SIG will offer an enlightening 90-minute online roundtable featuring presentations by six exceptional neurodivergent musicians, followed by open discussion and audience Q&A. The roundtable, titled “Speaking for Ourselves: Neurodivergent Perspectives on Music and Neurodiversity,” will be moderated by two of the SIG’s three co-chairs, Michael Bakan (Professor of Ethnomusicology at Florida State University and author of the 2021 Oxford University Press book Music & Autism: Speaking for Ourselves) and Niyati Dhokai (Research Associate Professor at George Mason University and Program Director for the Veterans and the Arts Initiative at GMU’s Hylton Performing Arts Center). MINd’s third co-chair, Jennifer Msumba, will be one of the six presenters.
