At Home in Our Sounds

Music, Race, and Cultural Politics in Interwar Paris

Rachel Anne Gillett

  • Links the advent of jazz music with concurrent social and political developments in Interwar Paris.
  • Foregrounds the experiences of women and working-class musicians and performers usually eclipsed in historical study by jazz icons of the period.
  • Draws on police records, musical recordings, personal stories, and visual culture, making for a truly interdisciplinary work.
