Anthropology of Music Lecture Series and Master Class
While the main lectures outline the subject focus and provide a theoretical framework of the respective AoM-LS/MC, the master class allows participants to discuss their ethnographic materials with the key expert as well as six highly experienced discussants from both (ethno)musicology and anthropology. Taking part in the AoM-LS/MC thus provides participants with the opportunity to rethink their work in the light of promising discussions and trends, and to jointly reflect on the current state of anthropological engagements with music and sound in general.
- introducing PhD students and postdocs to cutting edge theoretical debate, both concerning the study of music and social/cultural theory in general;
- encouraging re-examinations of ethnographic materials along new lines of inquiry and attempts to fuse ethnographic research on music with advanced theoretical reflection;
- relating empirical findings to broader societal issues;
- reflecting on similarities and differences of (ethno)musicological and anthropological approaches to the study of music and sound;
- facilitating dialogue between national and international students in the anthropology of music.
Timothy Taylor has allowed us to not only videotape his presentations, but also to provide the recordings online to a wider public, so we can invite you to listen to the lectures yourself. You find the videos on the respective pages – enjoy!
