Central European University‘s Summer Program hosts this course from June 28 to July 7, 2021 in Budapest, Hungary. The course aims to provide insight into the methodology and approaches of modern musicology as an integral part of heritage studies. We use music as a tool for analyzing and describing social changes, the interaction of state policies, culture, cultural heritage, and audience. The course builds on a highly interdisciplinary academic approach to modern musicology.
The complex theoretical and practical aspects will be taught in the format of lectures, seminar discussions, library research during a 9-day intensive summer course in Budapest. The course also includes a field trip and an individual project development program.
The course relies greatly on both CEU lecturers, Bard College and SOAS faculty members, and leading scholars in the field such as Jonathan Stock from University College Cork as well as Martin Stokes from King’s College London.
We invite applications from both practicing professionals and graduate students and junior researchers active in the field of research and teaching of related subjects (musicology, ethnography, heritage studies in its broadest sense, management, marketing and tourism studies, minority studies, etc.). Advanced undergraduate students will also be considered.
Application deadline: February 14, 2021
