DMO Special Issue 2022 – European Music Analysis and the Politics of Identity
In the wake of Philip Ewell’s article on “Music Theory and the White Racial Frame,” which focused on US music studies, this special issue examines the politics of identity in European musicology. Given that the methods and canonic repertoire of “music theory’s white racial frame” are mostly European, the intention behind the special issue is to bring forth scholarship that addresses some particularly European formations of musicology that complements and extends the US research on racism, whiteness, and their intersection with categories of gender, sex, ethnicity, and class in music theory. In this special issue, authors examine local, regional—and personal—histories and politics of European music analysis in case studies of Schenkerian and (neo-)Riemannian analysis, specific national formations of music theory, pedagogy, and whiteness, as well as reflections on what Ewell’s critique of music theory might mean in a European context.
Guest editors are Thomas Husted Kirkegaard and Mikkel Vad.
