Schenker, race and culture: the next chapterNews
Georg Olms Verlag has just published Barry Wiener’s article ‘Race, Nation and the Jewish Identity’ in New Horizons in Schenkerian Research, edited by Allen Cadwallader, Karen M. Bottge, & Oliver Schwab-Felisch. This article places Schenker’s thought in the context of being a Jewish academic in Austria between the wars.
In particular, it debunks the pernicious notion that Schenker was a Nazi sympathizer or a biological racist, as posited by certain
misguided academics in the US.
