Overview

Essays in Empire of Song adopt theoretical and epistemological orientations in their exploration of “popular music” within ethnomusicology and critical musicology, questioning the idea of “Europe” and the “nation” through and in music, at a time when the European self appears more fragmented, if not entirely shattered. Bringing together ethnomusicology, music studies, history, social anthropology, feminist theory, linguistics, media ethnography, postcolonial theory, comparative literature, and philosophy, Empire of Song will interest students and scholars in a vast array of disciplines.

Ethnomusicology
[Empire of Song] will definitely interest a wide group of scholars and students of European music, history, culture, and popular music. . . .Most importantly, the authors demonstrate that whether tasteless or seriously sensitive, the Eurovision Song Contest is a praxis in which European modernities, ever shifting mindsets, and expanding borders are celebrated.
