MUSIC 7345

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course provides an introduction to the development of the field of musicology, ethnomusicology, and music research in Latin America beginning in the late nineteenth century. Readings focus on particular periods, foundational authors from various regions and their works, and also the kinds of work being conducted by contemporary working in on Latin America. A large portion of the readings will focus on materials unpublished in English or little known to scholars in Anglo-American academia. The goal of the course is not only that students gain a better feeling for the cultural and historical complexities of the region, the unique issues surrounding Latin American music scholarship (including the blurry disciplinary boundary between musicology and ethnomusicology) but also that they understand different music scholarship initiatives in Latin America as both, responses to larger political and historical moments in the area and dialogues within larger transnational intellectual networks.
