The Fifth Symposium took institutionalisation as its theme in order to contribute to and clarify the ways in which they exert power, the relationships between them, and the hierarchies they establish. In the final plenary session, delegates debated a range of topics that might be given further consideration in the next symposium. The discussion largely focussed on two areas of interest – heritage and networks – and both were considered important current areas of work with which the next symposium could engage. It has been decided that the sixth symposium should concentrate on networks and music, while the seventh would focus on questions of heritage.
The Sixth Symposium on Music History will therefore focus on issues relating to agents, actors and networks and the ways in which they relate to music in order to discuss changes in focus towards more collective and complex objects of study.
Keynote speakers of the symposium are
- Annegret Fauser (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, US)
- Antoine Hennion (Mines ParisTech, FR)
- Benjamin Piekut (Cornell University, US)
