Appel de conférences pour le colloque « Epistemologies of Music Analysis. What Theories, what Methods, for what Types of Music and in what Disciplinary and Cultural Contexts ? (ema-2023) », Paris, 29-31 mars 2023.
« The globalisation of culture has led to an unparalleled interaction between people, ideas and cultural production, including, of course, music. Such interconnectedness, enabled by digital technologies, has made us more aware of the broad range of music past and present around the world. In particular, it has forced music analysis — and musicology more generally — to open up to this diversity in order to understand it both from the inside and in relation to its socio-cultural, intellectual and historical environment.
However, such an endeavour creates a dilemma for analysis: either we design and develop universal methods, tools and concepts that risk glossing over the particularised contexts and issues relating to specific types of music, or we develop local approaches to address specific and contextual concerns that could hinder a broader understanding of the inter-relationship of repertoires and themes precisely at a time when musicology is becoming increasingly interconnected.
The aim of this conference is to identify possible ways out of this dilemma. By looking at music in terms of both its diversity and unity, and by drawing on a wide range of analytical theories, methods, discourses and practices according to disciplinary and cultural contexts, our hope is to find analytical approaches that combine the global and the local within a shared and unified intellectual framework. »
