The Society for Ethnomusicology and the Wesleyan University Music Department are pleased to collaborate for a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute in ethnomusicology. We will provide stipend support for the participation of twenty-two faculty from universities, four-year colleges, and community colleges, and three full-time graduate students. Three principal faculty from Wesleyan and six guest lecturers will lead the daily sessions over the course of two weeks.
What happens when music, people, and media move across the globe? What kinds of transformations take place? How has recent technology facilitated such transformations? These are some of the key questions that will challenge us as we look at case studies from around the world, introducing the selected NEH Summer Scholars to new and recent scholarship and developing teaching strategies for incorporating this focus into the curricula of both music and related humanities disciplines.
We welcome applications from specialists in ethnomusicology, music scholars outside the field of ethnomusicology, and academics in related disciplines. Application deadline: March 1, 2011.
