As the work of cultural criticism that recalls the concerns of Foucault, Hayden White, Zizek and others, Decentering Music examines the struggle for the authority to speak about music when humanities are in crisis. By linking the institutions that support musical research, including professional associations and universities, to complex historical changes such as globalization and the commodification of knowledge, Korsyn undertakes a critique of musical scolarship as an institutional discourse, while contributing to a general theory of disciplinary structures that goes beyond the limits of any single field.


The collation of parable, dialogue, anecdote, standard academic prose, and more into a collage text whose coherence does not depend on its uniformity is a remarkable achievement...Anyone interested in the state of the musicological art should find the arguments impossible to ignore. Lawrence Kramer, author of Musical Meaning: Toward a Critical History and Opera and Modern Culture: Wagner and Strauss A brilliantly irreverent, often profound romp through the mine-fields of poststructuralist thought and beyond. Richard Kramer, Distinguished Professor of Music, Graduate Center of the City University of New York This is an ambitious-and even audacious-book. Kevin Korsyn proposes nothing less than a major critique of contemporary musical scholarship...Provocative in conception and brilliant in execution. Thomas Christensen, Professor of Music and the Humanities, University of Chicago An absolute tour de force...Decentering Music will be a widely appreciated and much discussed book, quite possibly the most read book of its kind since Kerman's Contemplating Music. Brian Hyer, Associate Professor of Music, University of Wisconsin-Madison
