The research project presented here is intended to request a post-doctoral training fellowship, for a period of six months (September 2015 to February 2016), at the University Paris X, Nanterre - Ouest. This training will take place under the supervision of PhD Professor Idelette Muzart-Fonseca dos Santos, coordinator of CRILUS, Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires du Monde Lusophone. The research topic adopts a distinctly interdisciplinary perspective, combining elements of cultural history, French extraction, historical musicology, historiography and languages. Therefore, the Research Center coordinated by Professor Idelette Muzart is the ideal place for the development of this investigation. The research project aims to discuss current elements and dilemmas existing in a field of knowledge that is concerned with sounds, sonority, listening and, of course, music. The main focus is to further the researches and discussions that contribute to understanding which is perhaps a new territory of historiographical knowledge with its own theoretical, methodological and thematic concerns. The research goal is by no means to seek paths to a "new history of music", although it takes into account the discussions on this issue. Either way, the perspective is that of historians concerned with listening to the past and ways to access it/listen to it, and with the processes of building historical knowledge that has music, sounds and listening as main focus. This discussion has been carried out by the members and researchers of the Research Group on the memory and history of music ( The goal is thereby to both expand the existing collective discussions as well as to develop the individual research, presented in the following item, as a way to advance the debate.
