This interdisciplinary conference, to be held at the Martin Institute of Stonehill College in Easton, MA on 18-19 April 2008 will explore the diverse musical responses to war, ranging from the various types of traditional war protest music to the music of soldiers and comrades-in-arms to patriotic and nationalistic music from a global perspective. The conference will cap a year-long study of war at the Martin Institute—its politics, history, social and cultural effects—and will seek to analyze the complex relationship between war and music. As an example of the Martin Institute’s commitment to the power of crossing disciplinary borders, we welcome papers from a range of experts in fields such as music theory and history, musical theater, sociology, history, anthropology, political science, cultural studies, and literature.
