Description

Music and Postwar Transitions in the 19th and 20th Centuries is the first book to highlight the significance of the idea of ‘postwar transition’ in the field of music and to demonstrate how the contribution of musicians, composers, and their publics have influenced contemporary understandings of war. At the intersection of four domains including: the relationship between music and war culture, commemorative and consolatory dimensions of music, migration and exile, and the links between music, cultural diplomacy, and propaganda, leading historians, political scientists, psychologists, and musicologists explore disruptions and connections to music through the backdrop war. In turn, this volume sheds new light on what has been a blind spot in a growing historiography.

Anaïs Fléchet is Assistant Professor in History at the University of Paris-Saclay (UVSQ) and the Assistant Director of the Centre d’histoire culturelle des sociétés contemporaines. Her research focuses on music, international history, Brazil and the Global South.

Martin Guerpin is Assistant professor in Musicology at Paris-Saclay University. His research focuses on the relations between art and popular music, the relationship between music and identities (XIXth XXIth centuries), and musical life in casinos.

Philippe Gumplowicz is Professor of Musicology at the University Paris-Saclay (Évry-Val d’Essonne), and head of the department ‘Langues Arts Musique’. He is the Director of the School of Humanities of the University Paris-Saclay.

Barbara L. Kelly is Professor of Music and Head of the School of Music at the University of Leeds. From 2015 to 2022 she was Director of Research and Professor of Musicology at the Royal Northern College of Music. She is also President of the Royal Musical Association (2021-24) and was elected to the Academia Europaea in 2020.
