MUSI 302 - Doing Ethnomusicology

4.00 credit hours
In this course, we sharpen our research, critical reading, and writing skills as we explore the music of various global traditions. Through case studies, we examine how world cultures engage with music as models for our own ethnomusicological research. Additionally, through intensive listening sessions, we encounter sounds from diverse global traditions. Throughout, we investigate questions such as: What tools inform us about musical sounds and practices in near and distant places? How do we responsibly engage with the human subjects who inform us about their musical traditions? How does an understanding of diverse global traditions inform our contemporary musicianship?
