Introduction to Ethnomusicology


This seminar will provide an introduction to the discipline of ethnomusicology through an examination of the historical literature and a review of recent scholarship. In keeping with the field's multidisciplinary orientation, we will observe ethnomusicology as a part of wider trends in intellectual inquiry. As such, our discussions of major issues in ethnomusicology will be informed by consideration of related fields, including anthropology, historical musicology, literary theory, folklore, and cultural studies. Seminar members will have the opportunity to explore in depth those issues that are most germane to their own research interests while gaining a broader understanding of ethnomusicology as an academic discipline.
