Research Methods in Ethnomusicology

Ethnomusicology 301

Usual Description

This class is an advanced seminar grounding students in the major theoretical and methodological paradigms that have informed ethnomusicology since its inception as comparative musicology in the late 19th century. We will explore what constitutes ethnomusicology, along with how its definitions, interests, and questions have changed over time. Methodological concerns include an examination of fieldwork (including an exploration of what constitutes “the field”), issues of interpretation and representation in ethnographic writing and other ethnomusicological products (recordings, films, websites etc.), and analytical paradigms.
