Advanced study of historical and recent developments in musicology and ethnomusicology, considering a variety of methodologies and approaches that may be applied to advanced study in music. 2013 Offering: In this course we investigate the relationship between performance and composition and develop an awareness of the cross-fertilisations and tensions that exist between musicology and other academic disciplines. Topics examined include: the applications of feminist and queer theory; approaches to performance studies; the role of nationalism and race; the role of analysis; historiography; and reception. Through an examination of these and other issues, students are encouraged to develop a critical (self) awareness that will enable them to develop, contextualise, and question their own approach to music, both in their academic studies and in their daily life. Co-taught with MUSC 344.
