Music and Power in the Long Nineteenth Century

2-4 December 2021, Siena
Accademia Musicale Chigiana

The use of the arts, including music, as an instrument of representation and exercise of power, is widely debated within the context of the society of the ancien régime and the twentieth century, with frequent emphasis on absolutism and dictatorships. This conference aims to investigate this issue in the “long nineteenth century” (c. 1789-1914): the age of the Industrial Revolution, liberalism and social conflicts, nationalism and colonialism.

The geographical scope considered is the Western world (Europe and the Americas), including those extra-European territories subject to or influenced by colonial rule. The entire field of musical experience will be considered, without limitations on genre.

“Power” is understood not only in a strictly political sense, such as state power, or as the domination of one nation or ethnic group over others; instead, in light of contemporary and emerging historiographical and philosophical debates, the scope of the concept extends broadly to all aspects of social life in which relations of dominion/submission are significant. By way of example, the following types of relationships might be considered: those between social classes, between economic powers, between religious affiliations, between genders, within the family, and others, in all possible combinations and permutations.

Possible topics for consideration include, but are not limited to, the following:

– Musicians and power

– Musical practices as instruments of power and organizations of consent

– The language of power in musical material

– The use of music and entertainment in celebration

– Symbolic representations of power relationships in opera

– Sacred music as an expression of power

– Song and choral music as a means of exercising and negotiating power

– Folk, popular, and dance music within an increasingly powerful music industry

– Negotiations of power in discourses about music

– Domain relationships in musical education.

The official languages of the conference are English and Italian.

Scientific committee: Esteban Buch, Fabrizio Della Seta, Markus Engelhardt, Axel Körner, Massimiliano Locanto, Fiamma Nicolodi, Antonio Rostagno, Carlotta Sorba.
