This chapter explores how disciplinary identities emerge through so-called narratives of disciplinary legitimation. It focuses on six authors whose work seems to provide imaginative solutions to the problems of disciplinary identity: Lawrence Kramer, Kay Kaufman Shelemay, Manuel Peña, Nicholas Cook, Joseph Kerman, and Kofi Agawu. The cultural dilemmas to which they respond are examined. If the musicological subject is split, then its discourse is also divided; the narrative level may contradict the explicit assertions in the text. By exploding the narrative closure of these texts, we can open discourse to the strategic exclusions that make closure possible.

Keywords:   musical research, disciplinary legitimation, Lawrence Kramer, Kay Kaufman Shelemay, Manuel Peña, Nicholas Cook, Joseph Kerman, Kofi Agawu
