Welcome to France: Musiques, Cultures, 1789-1918

Bienvenue à France: Musiques, Cultures, 1789-1918

This website provides a portal to two collections of resources for researchers interested in music criticism and in the more general musical culture of the nineteenth century in France.

The project is managed by Katharine Ellis (University of Cambridge) and Mark Everist (University of Southampton). It is hosted by the Department of Music, University of Southampton

We are an ever-expanding group of academics, librarians, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. We began with around 30 members and now number nearly 200. We run at least one international event per year. Meetings are routinely bilingual (French/English), and most frequently take place in Paris.

The project was initially set up with a network grant from the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council in 2006, and was initially managed through the Institute of Musical Research at the School of Advanced Study in the University of London.  It received a School of Advanced Study Initiatives grant, 2006-8, and a further award, 2008-09, and went on to receive funding from the British Academy, the University of Southampton and further awards from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.  Following the expiry of its two-year AHRC award (2008), the Network has gained funding from various sources whose grants have enabled the creation of the web resource.
