Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Socially and politically grounded enterprises such as feminism, semiotics and deconstruction have effected a major transformation in the ways in which the arts and humanities are studied. This provocative volume of essays challenges the ideology that insists music occupies an autonomous sphere. By examining the ways in which music and society interact with and mediate one another within and across socio-cultural boundaries, these authors--musicologists, sociologists, cultural theorists--provide a sound argument.

Synopsis:

Influenced by these approaches, the writers here question a prevailing ideology that insists there is a division between music and society and examine the ways in which the two do in fact interact and mediate one another within and across socio-cultural boundaries.
