Advanced study in the historical development of musicology as a discipline, considering a variety of methodologies and approaches that may be applied to advanced study in music. 2015 Offering: We investigate the relationship between musicology and ethnomusicology, performance, and composition, and develop an awareness of the cross- fertilisations and tensions that exist between musicology and other academic disciplines, such as literary studies. 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 in their academic studies more broadly. 100% internal assessment. Co-taught with MUSC 344.
