Appel à contributions de la revue American Nineteenth Century History pour le numéro spécial « Music in American Nineteenth-Century History », sous la dir. de J. M. Mancini et Billy Coleman.
« In the nineteenth-century United States, music was everywhere: at work, leisure, and prayer; in places of worship and in the home, on the battlefield and the path of reform; in times of joy, crisis, and mourning. And yet in comparison to literature, art, and material culture, music and musical practice remain largely unsung within nineteenth-century US historiography. Thus until recently most historians ignored music, or considered its analysis beyond the bounds of historical enquiry. As a result, music has only begun to be treated as integral to the nineteenth-century experience, or analysed through a historical lens that sees and hears the world first and foremost through historical processes–social, economic, political, cultural, environmental–rather than through practices, parameters, and personnel derived from and internal to the world of music. »
