The Anthropology of Music Lecture Series and Masterclass (AoM-LS/MC) is generously supported by the VW-Foundation since its second edition in 2019. The very substantial funding of both the summer school and the speaker’s fees enables us to bring together national and international participants from all over the world, especially from the global South. We are also highly grateful for the generous support by the VW-Foundation that allowed us to develop this homepage.
The states ministry has funded the first edition of the Anthropology of Music Master Class and Lecture Series in 2018. Through substantial support, it has also helped to establish the anthropology of music as a new core area at the ifeas.
The German Research Council has contributed to funding the AoM-LS/MC 2019 with three student assistant employments, who considerably helped with the organization and made sure things ran smoothly during the event.
JGU’s Center for Intercultural Studies has supported the AoM-LS/MC 2018, covering travel expenses of our international contributors.
