International Musicological Conference



The central theme of the International Musicological Conference will be the musical historiographies of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. As well as attempting to recapitulate historical research of various profiles and surveying current research topics, the conference will provide an opportunity to reinterpret national musical historiographies and compare different perspectives on music history.

For several decades now, historiography, regarded as a central discipline of musicology, has witnessed a search for new directions and inspirations. The key tenets of historical musicology are being re-evaluated, particularly the notion that music history is forged by great individuals, great works, great traditions or great discoveries. The legitimacy of global and universal perspectives has been questioned, with scholars proposing that attention be focussed on regional reality and on everyday musical life. The question arises as to how such thinking affects local historiographies. Has there been any change in the methodologies and narratives of national music histories that lie outside the principal current of Western historical reflection? And, if so, in what direction?
