Theory for Ethnomusicology: Histories, Conversations, Insights (Second Edition), edited by Harris M. Berger and Ruth M. Stone, is a foundational work for courses in ethnomusicological theory. This book examines key intellectual movements and topic areas in social and cultural theory, and explores the way they have been taken up in ethnomusicological research. New co-editor Harris M. Berger and Ruth M. Stone investigate the discipline’s past, present, and future, reflecting on contemporary concerns while exploring significant developments since the publication of the first edition in 2008.

A dozen contributors approach a broad range of theoretical topics alive in ethnomusicology. Each chapter examines ethnographic and historical works from within ethnomusicology, showcasing the unique contributions scholars in the field have made to wider, transdisciplinary dialogs, illuminating the field’s broad relevance, and pointing the way toward new horizons of research.

New to this edition:

  • Every chapter in the book is completely new, with richer and more comprehensive discussions.
  • New chapters have been added on gender and sexuality, sound studies and voice studies, performance studies and critical improvisation studies, and theories of participation.
  • New text boxes and notes make connections among the chapters, emphasizing points of contact and conflict among intellectual movements.
