Practicing Ethnomusicology
MUSC 507
Fall 2022 not offered

This course provides a broad introduction to the research methods of ethnomusicology. The theory and practice of musical ethnography are examined, including techniques of face-to-face and remote fieldwork, ethnographic writing, research ethics and representation, bi-musicality, approaches to the transcription and analysis of musical sound, ownership, repatriation and dissemination of ethnographic materials. Students gain an understanding of the historical development of ethnomusicology and its relationship to allied disciplines such as musicology and anthropology, become familiar with the work of prominent scholars in the field, and acquire practical skills of ethnography-based research.
