IN MEMORIAM Dr Vesna Mikić (1967–2019)

 

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr Vesna Mikić, Full Professor at the Department of the Faculty of Music, University of Arts in Belgrade, and member of the Editorial Board of AM Journal of Art and Media Studies. Professor Mikić passed away on Wednesday, October 30 2019, after difficult illness.

Professor Mikić was the Chief of the Department of Musicology at the Faculty of Music. In addition, her activities in pedagogy included, over the years, engagements at the other institutions, such as the University of Arts (Interdisciplinary studies program), Faculty of Philology and Arts (Kragujevac), Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Academy of Arts in Priština, etc. She was a guest lecturer at Conservatoire National Supériour de Musique et de Danse de Paris, Institute of Musicology at the Humboldt University in Berlin, and Department of Musicology at the Faculty of Philosophy in Ljubljana. She was deputy editor-in-chief of the New Sound Journal of Musicology.

Her initiatives for introducing topics at the time new in the local academic context resulted in several specific academic courses on the topics of electroacoustic music, theory and practice of musicology in media, theories, histories and genres of popular art, culture and music, on art, music and politics, on film and television music, and aspects of 20th and 21st century music.

It is important to stress that one of hers, unfortunately, unfinished projects, was introduction of the program Studies of (contemporary) music-media cultures (created with Branka Popović and Svetlana Savić).

Besides her broad academic and pedagogical activity, Professor Mikić was the pioneer in several scientific fields. In her study Muzika u tehnokulturi [Music in Technoculture, Belgrade, 2004] she analyzed the problems of music and technology while introducing methodologies of cultural studies in interdisciplinary musicological work.

Her second book, Lica srpske muzike – neoklasicizam [Faces of Serbian Music – neoclassicism, Belgrade, 2009], she wrote about Serbian 20th-century music practices. Interest for both 20th century and contemporary music was evident in numerous studies on Serbian authors, through which she made great contribution to the written word on contemporary composers. Among those, significant number was dedicated to the work of Srđan Hofman.

Finally, by introducing courses on popular music and founding the Centre for popular music research, she created the possibilities for researching this interdisciplinary field in which she gave several studies, focusing on many of those on the Eurovision Song Contest and its political consequences.

Finally, as a mentor, professor, colleague, member of commissions and various professional bodies, she was prepared to give honest, striking comments and unlimited support. Her openness for new topics, the capability to recognize and tackle innovative ideas in both her works and that of her colleagues and students, and continuous work on shaping contemporary musicology and theories of arts will be greatly missed.
