How does music (its concepts, practices, and institutions) shape the exercise of diplomacy, the pursuit of power, and the conduct of international relations? This conference provides a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue among scholars and practitioners, from various historical standpoints and diverse disciplines including musicology, ethnomusicology, political science, history, and literary studies.

Nineteen speakers will present their work in seven sessions: “Networks of Cultural Exchange,” “Musical Representation, International Image,” “Improvising Policy,” “Musical Mediations: Universality, Globalization, Aesthetics,” “New Forms of Cultural Diplomacy,” “The Orchestra as Ambassador,” and “The Musical Work as Diplomatic Action.”

Made possible by the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Center for the Humanities at Tufts (CHAT), the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard University, the Tufts University Department of Music, and the Harvard University Department of Music.

Rebekah Ahrendt (Tufts University), Mark Ferraguto (The Hartt School), Damien Mahiet (Harvard University / Denison University)
