This course introduces students to the social & cultural study of music, primarily drawing on material from ethnomusicology and anthropology. Students will work together over the course of the year to put these ideas into practice through a fieldwork-based project on music in Charlottesville. This project builds on the work of the course’s first cohort, in 2018-19, to create a musical map of Charlottesville, based on research with local artists and community members. In 2019-20, students will continue building relationships with these individuals and scenes; and will further develop the map in collaboration with local musicians. The aim is to produce an interactive tool that tells the story of music and musicianship in town.
