Ethnomusicology and Global Culture

A two-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university faculty examining recent scholarship on ethnomusicology and focusing on how music is transformed when it travels from one place to another.

The Society for Ethnomusicology and the Wesleyan University Music Department will present a Summer Institute, titled "Ethnomusicology’s Critical Role in Understanding Global Culture," on the Wesleyan University campus from June 20 through July 1, 2011. The purpose of the Institute will be to help college professors engage current perspectives on music-making worldwide and to incorporate these perspectives in teaching music and other humanities courses. With a focus on the global circulation of music practices through human migration/travel and new uses of technology, the Institute will encourage participants to critically examine such concepts as globalization, transnationalism, and diaspora, and their use in humanities teaching today.
