F501 | 16984 | Stone
This course, team-taught by an ethnomusicologist (Stone) and

correspondence and convergence between folklore and
ethnomusicology. Designed to engage students in theoretical
perspectives, modes of professional engagement, and materials, this
class is required of beginning graduate students in
ethnomusicology. The course is also open to--and encourages the
participation of--students in adjacent fields with an interest in
the role of symbolic processes and forms in society and culture, the
sociology of culture, and the aesthetics of everyday life.
Counts as a core course for Ph.D. minors in folklore and
Required course for first-year ethnomusicology students.
