Music and French History

La musique et l’histoire française

French Historical Studies (Special Issue)

Resumo

The history of the music of France has traditionally been studied as a separate category without the same robust interest as other cultural artifacts such as film and literature. More recent scholarship illuminates the place of music in French society and suggests that more work should be done to sketch out the particular place of music in all its forms in French history. This special issue of French Historical Studies proposes to take stock of and advance this historiographical renewal. What can the production and consumption of music tell us about the shifting nature of French identity and the relationships among various constituencies in French history?

Presentation

The editors of French Historical Studies seek articles for a special issue on music in the Francophone world to appear in 2022.

The history of the music of France has traditionally been studied as a separate category without the same robust interest as other cultural artifacts such as film and literature. More recent scholarship illuminates the place of music in French society and suggests that more work should be done to sketch out the particular place of music in all its forms in French history.

This special issue of French Historical Studies proposes to take stock of and advance this historiographical renewal. What can the production and consumption of music tell us about the shifting nature of French identity and the relationships among various constituencies in French history?

We seek a wide range of approaches to reflect the variety of recent scholarship, which includes music from outside the Hexagon. We define music in the most inclusive way to cover art music, religious music, and popular music, as well as its producers, interlocutors, and audiences.

We encourage submissions that assess the changing spaces of musical production, development of music industries, variations in media (sound recording, video, and file sharing as examples), the conditions of circulation. Music remains ubiquitous today in France, but we should look beyond the notion of sonic wallpaper and understand the particular meanings ascribed to music throughout French history. What did music mean to medieval and prerevolutionary listeners, and whom was it for? How did technological changes transform the meaning of music? Does music serve as a form of citizenship for the French?

Submissions on all periods, from medieval to contemporary, are welcome. Transnational perspectives that look at music within global and connected histories are particularly encouraged, but there should be a Francophone aspect to that history to connect it with the journal’s scholarly interests. The journal is also interested in multimedia and digital opportunities for journal articles.

Queries about submission and other matters should be addressed to the guest editors: William Weber (william.weber@csulb.edu) and Jonathyne Briggs (jwbriggs@iun.edu).
