A graduate of the École Normale Supérieure of Lyon and of the Paris Conservatory, Fanny Gribenski is an associate scholar at the Université d’Évry Val d’Essonne. Her research is dedicated to the history of nineteenth-century music and more specifically the history of liturgy and church music during the French Concordat, the relationship between music and spaces, the development of musical historiography, and, more recently, the diplomatic and technological history of the standardization of the diapason pitch. Committed to interdisciplinary approaches, her work engages in dialogue with various fields: history, literature, political science, sociology, gender, and sound studies. In her dissertation, defended in 2015 at the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), Fanny Gribenski studied the concert life of nineteenth-century Paris churches, questioning especially the relationship between musical practices and the constitution of sacred versus secular spaces. Her postdoctoral project focuses on the history of the international negotiations and other scientific, aesthetic, commercial, and political operations that surrounded the standardization of “A” throughout the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century. From November 2016 to October 2017, she will be a Fulbright fellow and a visiting scholar at the University of California Los Angeles.
