Analysis, Theory, and History of Music: and/or/vs Relationship
The relation between the domains of music scholarship remains a complex one. The formulation of the abstract principles of theory often comes in contrast with the practical aspects of analytical procedures. Just as often, on the contrary, both are synthesized in a single approach. The preference is often given to either theory or analysis: the proportion in combination varies from one national society to another. It appears in addition that in some countries the historical component remains an inseparable component of theory or analysis pedagogy, while in other countries there is a tendency to separate historical musicology from music theory. This intricate map of the world of theoretical music scholarship asks to become a theme for discussion and the Organizing Committee decided to address it in the European and global forum of EuroMAC 10.
We invite papers on existing and new topics:
1) The epistemology of music theory in relation to that of music analysis and history.
2) Music theory as a kind of universal knowledge vs. historically-informed theory.
3) Theoretical and historical aspects of ethnomusicology from its origins to today.
4) Aspects of theory and analysis that deal with the expressive content of music: music as a language, musical semiotics, and musical signification.
5) The theories of new music, the object and the methods of its analysis.
6) Technical approaches to theory and analysis vs new musicology and critical theory.
7) Theories and methods of analysis
8) Free topics.
