Instructor: David Novak
Wednesday 4:30-7:00 PM, MUS 1133
A graduate seminar on ethnographic writing, with a particular focus on “art worlds” of music and expressive culture. The course will consider the ways that individual artists, scenes, sounds, performance practices, and circulations are contextualized as ethnographic sites and subjects of music and musical sociality. We will read several historical and contemporary ethnographies, discuss the representational and technical projects of each text, and unpack the techniques and goals of different authors and readers.
INT 594 AB
This course is affiliated with the Ancient Borderlands Research Focus Group. The Ancient Borderlands Research Focus Group unites UCSB faculty and graduate students with common research interests in the history of Mediterranean antiquity, broadly conceived. We are investigating the process by which groups define, create and maintain their identities over time. The creation of boundaries, among ethnic, political, or religious groups, is a dynamic activity that can be reflected, not only by changes in material culture, but also in the rhetorical strategies adopted by ancient authors and the political tactics pursued by those seeking power. As members of several departments, including Classics, History, Religious Studies, and Anthropology, we are also interested in challenging the disciplinary boundaries between us, believing that we have much to learn from one another.
