« This conference, convened by musicologists Diego Alonso and Steffen Just and historian Christian Koller, aims to examine the interwar soundscapes of political and ideological propaganda from a joint musicological and historiographical perspective.

Suggested themes include, but are not restricted to:

  • Transnational performance practices and contexts
  • Supranational musical repertoires (anthems and songs)
  • Ideological discourses surrounding sound propaganda
  • Aestheticization of sonic propaganda
  • Political rituals and regional, national and transnational contexts of creation and reception
  • Transatlantic transfers in the field of music and sonic propaganda
  • Past and current theories of sonic warfare and sound propaganda
  • Role of sound technology in transnational propaganda: gramophone recordings, radio, loudspeakers and sound systems, television »
