JWST 57 Ethnomusicology

Ethnomusicology is the study of music-particularly that outside the Western classical tradition-in its social and cultural context.  In 2008, the course focuses on the musical cultures of one large geographical area: the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, where the interaction of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism has produced both convergence and contrast in the rich array of musical traditions shaped by the Abrahamic belief systems and the social practices that have emerged from them.  Open to all students.  Reading music not a prerequisite.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
