Research Skills in Ethnomusicology--IRL & Digital|
Fall 2020 not offered
This course provides an introduction to research methods in ethnomusicology, a discipline that studies all types of music (and sound), both in real life and digital, from diverse humanistic and social scientific perspectives. The course is organized around weekly hands-on exploratory and empirical mini projects moving from virtual field to real-world fieldwork to interviewing musicians to digital sound-mapping and music video editing, from learning about Wesleyan's wide-ranging music ensembles to writing album reviews to "composing" an ethnography, which will offer orientation to a discipline that has been central to Wesleyan's approach to music and sound for over 50 years.
