Ethnomusicological Research

Introduction to Field and Laboratory Techniques in Ethnomusicology
In this course we will study various methods for conducting ethnomusicological research. Field activities will include writing ethnographic notes, making audio/video recordings, conducting interviews, and photography. Students will learn how to design feasible music research projects, acquire research clearance through the Institution Review Board (IRB), document musical cultures and practices, analyze and interpret collected data, and present our findings through written research reports and oral presentations. Students will need access to digital cameras, audio/video recording devices, and editing software. Some music background will be assumed.
