I personally think Twitter and other social media platforms are important places for these conversations to start. Obviously, these discussions can transcend to academic circles and turn into something more like this round table discussion (or published articles later) that thoroughly explore the topic; however, these initial conversations are important .
“From your perspective, what type of discourse, if any, do you see having the potential to achieve a positive (growth-minded) outcome regarding this topic?”
I think discourse on music in general. Much of this debate has to do with larger concepts such as what defines genres, what defines industries, and how culture influences all of these. Such discourse allows us to explore these questions. This will not only lead to a more holistic discussion about the topic, but it will allow for people to become more aware of how music from other communities is also stereotyped/generalized/defined by audiences and media.
