Writing music into Australian history

Research output: Contribution to journalReview ArticleResearchpeer-review


General historians have tended to overlook music when seeking to accommodate the arts in their narratives. Looking at the genre of the short history over the last century this article explores the faltering attempts to rectify this omission and argues that the decline of the radical nationalist tradition in Australian historiography may assist music in finding its proper place in the writing of Australian history.
