50 Years of Music Sociology in Vienna

 50 Years of Music Sociology in Vienna

24 – 25 September 2015

The conference will address the current status of music sociology as a scientific and academic discipline: what are the appraisals of music sociology as a research area and an academic discipline? What are the main themes and questions, or what should they be? And correspondingly, what are the suitable theories and methods that are being used or should be used?

The questions require a review of the history of the discipline, an appraisal of the relationship with associated disciplines (such as musicology and music psychology) also in order to conceive of future perspectives.
