Julien Mallet has contributed to Lives in Music: Mobility and Change in a Global Context. The book analyses interwoven patterns of mobility, change, and power in music and dance practices.
It challenges some commonly accepted conceptual tools that are ubiquitous in anthropology today, including cultural hybridity, transnational networks, and globalization. Based on seven life stories that are the result of extensive ethnographic long-term field research efforts, the processes of geographic and social mobility, transformation, and power relative to music and dance practices are explored in different parts of the world. Seven writers provide life stories constructed through ethnographic techniques and supported by a deep knowledge of local customs.
