Folklore | FOLKLORE COLLOQUY
F501 | 2435 | Bauman
The objective of this team-taught course is to introduce students to major
points of correspondence and convergence between folklore and
ethnomusicology. The course is designed to engage students in a dialogue
that explores the grounds for integration of these lines of inquiry based
upon their conceptual frameworks, research methodologies, theoretical
perspectives, modes of professional engagement, and intellectual histories.
Required of beginning graduate students in folklore and ethnomusicology, the
course is also open to--and encourages the participation of--students in
adjacent fields with an interest in the role of symbolic forms in society
and culture, the sociology of culture, and the aesthetics of everyday life.
Also counts as a core course for Ph.D. minors in folklore and
Readings: Course packet available at the IU Bookstore and TIS.
