ICTM Study Group on Historical Sources

The Study Group on Historical Sources is dedicated to discuss music, sound and dance sources. It focuses on any kind of source, both digital and non-digital (e.g. audio and visual recordings, manuscripts, edited texts, images, musical scores, iconography, films, etc.) and seeks to stimulate transdisciplinary debates on those sources within archival conditions.

The aim is to examine the diverse ways of generating, archiving, classifying, analyzing and editing historical sources concerned to music, sound and dance practices. In other words, the Study Group encourages the development of an epistemology of the sources. The following examples are welcome topics: theoretical and ideological frameworks; institutional politics; academic and non-academic archiving processes; the history of archiving; archive as an agent of social transformation; social memory and politics of patrimonialization; tangible and intangible heritage; postcolonial and decolonial approaches; power relationships; aesthetic legacies; legal and access policies; archiving and gender perspectives; technologies of archiving; work routines in archiving; digital humanities; amongst others.
