Regulation of amateurship

For the few non-Swedish readers who might stumble in here, I can point to my article which is now up in translation at Eurozine: “The revenge of the beer fiddlers? The regulation of amateurs in musical life“.

Originally published last year as “Bönhasarnas revansch?“, it provoked a few mentions in the press. Some read the article as a historical account, which it is, while others preferred to read it as a “pro-amateurism” argument, which it isn’t exactly. But I would not care to dispute interpretations of this kind:

In exhaustive fashion, the article shows that those who fight against amateurs are aligning themselves on the wrong side of history.

By the way, I’ve always found “amateurism” to be a strange term. Reminds me too much of an ideological position or a general economic system. Wouldn’t “amateurship” be more appropriate in most contexts? I’m anyway happy that I did not have to translate the article myself. Thanks to Fronesis for that!

Nice. Pluspoäng till Eurozine för att de tillhandahåller PDF-versioner av sina texter.

Det här är intressanta grejer, inte minst i relation till folkmusikens professionalisering som vi diskuterar friskt!
