Theodor W. Adorno placed music at the centre of his critique of modernity and broached some of the most important questions about the role of music in contemporary society. One of his central arguments was that music, through the manner of its composition, affected consciousness and was a means of social management and control. His work was primarily theoretical however, and because these issues were never explored empirically his work has become sidelined in current music sociology. This book argues that music sociology can be greatly enriched by a return to Adorno's concerns, in particular his focus on music as a dynamic medium of social life. Intended as a guide to 'how to do music sociology' this book deals with critical topics too often sidelined such as aesthetic ordering, cognition, the emotions and music as a management device and reworks Adorno's focus through a series of grounded examples.

Sociology and Music Education addresses a pressing need to provide a sociological foundation for understanding music education. The music education community, academic and professional, has become increasingly aware of the need to locate the issues facing music educators within a broader sociological context. This is required both as a means to deeper understanding of the issues themselves and as a means to raising professional consciousness of the macro issues of power and politics by which education is often constrained. The book outlines some introductory concepts in sociology and music education and then draws together seminal theoretical insights with examples from practice with innovative applications of sociological theory to the field of music education. The book concludes with an Afterword by Christopher Small.

Das "Handbuch Spezielle Soziologien" gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über die weit verzweigte Landschaft soziologischer Teilgebiete und Praxisfelder. Im Gegensatz zu vergleichbaren Buchprojekten versammelt der Band in über vierzig Einzelbeiträgen neben den einschlägigen Gegenstands- und Forschungsfeldern der Soziologie wie etwa der Familien-, Kultur- und Religionssoziologie auch oftmals vernachlässigte Bereiche wie etwa die Architektursoziologie, die Musiksoziologie und die Soziologie des Sterbens und des Todes. Damit wird sowohl dem interessierten Laien, den Studierenden von Bachelor- und Masterstudiengängen als auch den professionellen Lehrern und Forschern der Soziologie ein Gesamtbild des Faches vermittelt. Die jeweiligen Artikel führen grundlegend in die einzelnen Teilbereiche der Soziologie ein und informieren über Genese, Entwicklung und den gegenwärtigen Stand des Forschungsfeldes. Das "Handbuch Spezielle Soziologien" bietet durch die konzeptionelle Ausrichtung, die Breite der dargestellten Teilbereichssoziologien sowie die Qualität und Lesbarkeit der Einzelbeiträge bekannter Autorinnen und Autoren eine profunde Einführung in die grundlegenden Themenbereiche der Soziologie.

Bereits zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts konnte Georg Simmel beobachten, dass das individuelle Wahrnehmungsvermögen von den Alltagsdingen, Architekturen und Techniken einer Gesellschaft geprägt wird. Von der Soziologie wurde die Frage nach dem Zusammenhang von materieller Kultur, Sinnlichkeit und sozialer Ordnung jedoch lange nicht weiterverfolgt. Im Anschluss an den aktuellen practice, body und material turn lotet der vorliegende Band diese Leerstelle theoretisch, methodologisch und empirisch aus. Dabei stehen vier Themenfelder im Vordergrund: Ästhetik innerhalb und außerhalb der Kunst, die affektive Macht der Dinge, die atmosphärische Komposition von Architektur sowie sinnliche Expertisen. Mit Beiträgen u.a. von Regula Valérie Burri, Joachim Fischer, Robert Gugutzer, Hans Peter Hahn, Jane M. Jacobs, Gabriele Klein, Peter Osborne, Andreas Reckwitz und Kaja Silverman.

Christians have sometimes professed that the church ought to be "in the world but not of it," yet the meaning and significance of this conviction has continued to challenge and confound. In the context of persecution, Christians in the ancient world tended to distance themselves from the social and civic mainstream, while in the medieval and early modern periods, the church and secular authorities often worked in close relationship, sharing the role of shaping society. In a post-Christendom era, this latter arrangement has been heavily critiqued and largely dismantled, but there is no consensus in Christian thought as to what the alternative should be. The present collection of essays offers new perspectives on this subject matter, drawing on sometimes widely disparate interlocutors, ancient and modern, biblical and "secular." Readers will find these essays challenging and thought-provoking.

Die Achtundsechziger polarisieren noch immer. Heinz Bude hat mit Männern und Frauen gesprochen, die damals dabei waren. Gemeinsam ist ihnen der Aufbruch aus der Kindheit zwischen Ruinen in eine Welt des befreiten Lebens. Aber Adorno gab ihnen auf den Weg, dass es einem umso schwerer wird, sich in der Gesellschaft nützlich zu machen, je mehr man von der Gesellschaft versteht. Mit einer trostlosen Vergangenheit im Rücken wollten sie die Gesellschaft verändern, um ein eigenes Leben zu finden. 50 Jahre nach der Revolte ist es an der Zeit zu verstehen, wie viel Privates seinerzeit das Politische bewegte: Heinz Bude, einer der besten Kenner der deutschen Gesellschaft, zieht Bilanz.

Where Music Helps: Community Music Therapy in Action and Reflection

This book explores how people may use music in ways that are helpful for them, especially in relation to a sense of wellbeing, belonging and participation. The central premise for the study is that help is not a decontextualized effect that music produces. The book contributes to the current discourse on music, culture and society and it is developed in dialogue with related areas of study, such as music sociology, ethnomusicology, community psychology and health promotion. Where Music Helps describes the emerging movement that has been labelled Community Music Therapy, and it presents ethnographically informed case studies of eight music projects (localized in England, Israel, Norway, and South Africa). The various chapters of the book portray "music's help" in action within a broad range of contexts; with individuals, groups and communities – all of whom have been challenged by illness or disability, social and cultural disadvantage or injustice. Music and musicing has helped these people find their voice (literally and metaphorically); to be welcomed and to welcome, to be accepted and to accept, to be together in different and better ways, to project alternative messages about themselves or their community and to connect with others beyond their immediate environment. The overriding theme that is explored is how music comes to afford things in concert with its environments, which may suggest a way of accounting for the role of music in music therapy without reducing music to a secondary role in relation to the "therapeutic," that is, being "just" a symbol of psychological states, a stimulus, or a text reflecting socio-cultural content.

Music Asylums: Wellbeing Through Music in Everyday Life

Taking a cue from Erving Goffman’s classic work, Asylums, Tia DeNora develops a novel interdisciplinary framework for music, health and wellbeing. Considering health and illness both in medical contexts and in the often-overlooked realm of everyday life, DeNora argues that these identities are by no means mutually exclusive. Moreover, she suggests that the promotion of health and more specifically, mental health, involves a great deal more than a concern with medication, genetic predispositions, clinical and neuro-scientific procedures. Adopting a holistic, interactionist focus, Music Asylums reconnects states of wellness and wellbeing to encounters with others and - critically - to opportunities for aesthetic experience. Building on DeNora's earlier work on music as a technology of self in everyday life, the book presents music as an active ingredient of action, identity, capacity and consciousness. From there, it suggests that access to, and evaluation of, music is an important ethical matter. Intended for scholars and practitioners in psychiatry and psychology, palliative care, socio-music studies, music psychology and the allied health professions, Music Asylums showcases music's role in the existential project of being and staying well, mentally and physically, from moment-to-moment and across all realms of social life.

"Music triggered a healing process from within me. I started singing for the joy of singing myself and it helped me carry my recovery beyond the state I was in before I fell ill nine years ago to a level of well-being that I haven't had perhaps for thirty years." This book explores the experiences of people who took part in a vibrant musical community for people experiencing mental health difficulties, SMART (St Mary Abbotts Rehabilitation and Training). Ansdell (a music therapist/researcher) and DeNora (a music sociologist) describe their long-term ethnographic work with this group, charting the creation and development of a unique music project that won the 2008 Royal Society for Public Health Arts and Health Award. Ansdell and DeNora track the 'musical pathways' of a series of key people within SMART, focusing on changes in health and social status over time in relation to their musical activity. The book includes the voices and perspectives of project members and develops with them a new understanding of how music promotes their health and wellbeing. A contemporary ecological understanding of 'music and change' is outlined, drawing on and further developing theory from music sociology and Community Music Therapy. This innovative book will be of interest to anyone working in the mental health field, but also music therapists, sociologists, musicologists, music educators and ethnomusicologists. This volume completes a three part 'triptych', alongside the other volumes, Music Asylums: Wellbeing Through Music in Everyday Life, and How Music Helps: In Music Therapy and Everyday Life.

Max Weber (1864-1920) war ein deutscher Soziologe und Nationalökonom. Er gilt als einer der Klassiker der Soziologie sowie der gesamten Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften. Mit seinen Theorien und Begriffsprägungen hatte er großen Einfluss insbesondere auf die Wirtschafts-, die Herrschafts- und die Religionssoziologie. Mit seinem Namen verknüpft sind die "Protestantismus-Kapitalismus-These", das Prinzip der "Werturteilsfreiheit" sowie die Unterscheidung von "Gesinnungs-" und "Verantwortungsethik". Aus dem Buch: "Die Tendenz zur Gleichheit der Distanzen war überall in starkem – wenn auch gewiß nicht ausschließlichem – Maße durch die Interessen der Transponierbarkeit der Melodien mitbestimmt. Es finden sich in den erhaltenen hellenischen Melodiefragmenten, wenigstens im zweiten Apollon-Hymnus von Delphi, Spuren davon, daß auch die hellenische Musik gelegentlich von dem Mittel der Wiederholung einer Tonphrase in anderer Tonlage Gebrauch machte, und für diesen Zweck mußten die Ganztonschritte für ein melodisch so feines Gehör wie das hellenische gleich groß sein. (Es ist daher auch kein Zufall, daß die harmonisch "richtige" Terzenberechnung nicht an der diatonischen, sondern an der enharmonischen und chromatischen Skala zuerst vorgenommen wurde, bei welcher der Ditonus ausgeschaltet war.)"
