Reader J. P. E. Harper-Scott in the Oxford Cultural Review

Posted on 11/12/2012

J. P. E. Harper-Scott, a musicologist and reader at our department was in the news recently while being interviewed by the Oxford Cultural Review for his new book The Quilting Points of Modernism.  Drawing from a huge range of writings from Badiou to Žižek, he proposes a new theory of modernism, "a theory that fits all music since the modernist revolution as an essential act of indestructible relationships between truth claims... So not just the stuff that we know of from GCSE as ‘the modern period’, but all of it – jazz, pop, even the way that world music is consumed in the West." 

Dr Harper-Scott's new book is published by Cambridge University Press.
