CALL FOR PAPERS
The State We’re In: Directions in Researching post-1900 British Music University of Surrey
16-17 April 2015
Dr Joanna Bullivant (University of Nottingham), Dr Christopher Mark (University of Surrey)
The last thirty years have witnessed a surge of interest in the study of British music since 1900 and a number of landmark publications wo kann ich musik kostenlos downloaden ohne anmeldung. Among a diverse body of work, the concept of ‘British modernism’; the role of theory and analysis versus cultural and reception history; the question of the cultural value of indigenous music; and issues of national musical identities in the face of radical change internationally, a declining Empire, an increasingly multicultural society, and strengthening nationalisms within the constituent British nations, have proved to be major – and contested – themes euro truck simulator 2 download kostenlos vollversion deutsch.
In recognition both of the diversity of work already embarked upon, and the topicality of issues of national identity and cultural value in Britain today, we believe the time is ripe for a dedicated forum to enable the exchange and development of new ideas windows 7 kann keine updates herunterladen.
