SOAN 100. Ethnomusicology Seminar

(Cross-listed as MUSI 100 )
Ethnomusicology is an academic discipline that examines music in and as culture. This seminar examines how the interdisciplinary field has developed over the 20th and 21st centuries through an investigation of its origins, approaches, methodologies, and contemporary theoretical questions. Course readings will address the relationships between music and a variety of conceptual themes including race, ethnicity, identity, nationalism, Diaspora, globalization, and gender. The music cultures we will examine in this course represent a wide range of cultures, geographic regions, musical genres, and historical periods. Students will complete introductory exercises in research, transcription, analysis, ethnographic fieldwork, & performance.
