Books/Manuscript: (BE) CFP (Articles and Monographs): Analysis in Context

Contributed by Admin on Aug 23, 2012


“The Analysis in Context series seeks to present outstanding research in which the domains of music analysis and music history are seen as fundamentally interdependent. Proposals that fall within this concept are welcome at any time. Both monographs and essay-collections, treating music of any type and from all periods, will be considered. …
Proposals may be sent electronically to analysis-in-context at, and should consist of:

  • an outline of contents
  • a summary of around 1,000 words that clearly sets out the book's aims, novel contribution to scholarship, and the ways in which it relates to the concept of the series
  • a timetable for completion
Informal enquiries are also welcome.

Analysis in Context. Leuven Studies in Musicology

This series aims at consolidating recent trends in music analysis in which analytical and historical research are seen as interdependent. As a challenge to analyses that claim to confirm the universal validity of a theory, the series presents analyses that take account of the historically specific contexts in which the compositions under examination originated. From this perspective, the aims, methods and results of analysis may be as widely divergent as music history is: historical research may itself be a tool of analysis. On the other hand, if musicology is to include the study of musical works of art, contextual analysis is indispensable: analysis may be a tool of historical research. Historical contexts that may be relevant to analysis include areas such as aesthetics, compositional and listening strategies, sociological conditions, theoretical systems, and genre conventions. Analysis in Context is addressed to an international readership.
