*CALL FOR PAPERS*

*SYMPOSIUM: Music and Politics in the 1930s*



WHEN: Saturday 7 – Sunday 8 December 2019

WHERE: Melba Hall, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, The University of
Melbourne (Royal Pde, Parkville)



This symposium explores the impact of politics on music during the long
1930s (c.1925-1945). The expanding economic and cultural reach of the state
in democratic and totalitarian regimes, in tandem with the rise of mass
media in the form of radio and cinema, contributed to the politicisation of
music during this tumultuous period. Papers are welcome on any genre or
style of music and the ways in which politics intersected with issues
relating to:

   - musical creation
   - institutions and music making
   - the reception of and critical writings on music
   - emerging media and the presentation of music
   - music and other art forms

Specific sessions will be devoted to the complex relations between music,
political ideology, censorship and public morale during the Spanish Civil
War and World War II.
