Musicological Society of FB&H and Academy of Music in Sarajevo are organizing the International Musicological Symposium “Music in Society” for the ninth time. Since the following 2014, Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the centre of public attention on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, one of three offered thematic areas is dedicated to the Austro-Hungarian heritage in the music culture of the Balkans and beyond.
The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, the heart of the Balkans on 28th June 1914th was the spark that ignited the flame of war of the hitherto unprecedented scale. With several million dead and wounded, and immense human and material destruction, a new territorial division of Europe and the disappearance of the political order that existed at the time after the Napoleonic Wars was the most obvious consequence of the First World War.
Year 1914th was a turning point in the modern history of the world. Was it a turning point in the cultural history of Europe is a subject that takes different aspects of musicological discourse. The program committee encourages submissions within the following areas, although other topics are also welcome:
- Cultural and societal contexts of “small nations” music during the Austro-Hungarian rule
- Music today as the continuity of Austro-Hungarian heritage and the cosmopolitism of the local musical heritage
- Historiographical, pedagogical, ethnomusicological and composers’ practice
- Historiography – break-in periods and the development of musical culture in 19th and 20th century
- Ethnomusicological Balkanian researches
