Ukraine in Music History

Україна в історії музики

A Reassessment

Ukraine is a country rich in musical traditions yet its role in music history has attracted limited attention beyond its borders. The recent Russian invasion and its ideological frame have highlighted the need for a reappraisal of Ukraine’s cultures and a critical approach to its historiography. Our conference seeks to take stock and advance the state of research by examining a wide range of questions central to the study and treatment of Ukraine in music historiography.

The call for papers is now closed for new submissions. We thank everyone who submitted a proposal and hope to publish a programme shortly. The conference is now expected to be extended by half a day, also including Sunday morning, May 21st.

Keynote speakers

Liubov Morozova, Artistic Director, Kyiv Symphony Orchestra

Jann Pasler, Professor of Music, University of California, San Diego
