Music has long been a signifier of Italian identity, and its bearing on both popular and scholarly views of Italian nation-building during the long nineteenth century has only recently been seriously contested. At the same time, a growing body of scholarship has emerged that approaches musical italianità in this period as a set of shifting cultural constructs shaped by acts of (real or imaginary) border-crossing. This in turn invites critical attention on the nineteenth-century musical construction of Italian-ness from novel viewpoints, including the global and transnational.

Much recent scholarship on the work of J. M. Coetzee has focused on the relationship of his work to specific writers and literary traditions as well as to the broader philosophical tradition. Coetzee’s interests and activities, however, extend beyond the text-based focus of most of this scholarship to collaborations with visual artists and composers as well as text-based performance arts like film and opera, not to mention poetry.
