In­sti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion in Mu­sic His­tory

Institutionalization in Music History. DocMus Research Publications 19. Eds. Saijaleena Rantanen ja Derek B. Scott   

The latest volume in the DocMus Research Publications series provides new insights into the impact of the development of institutions on music, musical practices, and society at large from the 19th cen­tury to the pre­sent day.

The publication is based on a conference of the same name organised by the History Forum of the University of the Arts (2018). The 12 chapters in the publication have been selected from the conference presentations to form a coherent whole. The chronological scope of the work extends from the 19th century to the present day and covers a wide geographical area.  

The publication is divided into three thematic sections, the first of which deals with the institutionalization of musical practices. The articles move from the emergence of theatre and opera culture in nineteenth century Greece to the dominance of radio in the dissemination of music at the height of the disco boom in the United States in the 1970s. The second part of the volume highlights the impact of music exhibitions and festivals on the institutionalisation of music, including music education, and reflects the political power structures behind this phenomenon. Politics and power are emphasized in part three, which examines the possibilities for women musicians in the late nineteenth century, the impact of colonization and imperialism on the nature of the institutionalization of musical life, and the challenge to these political forces.
