Workshop: Postgraduate summer course « Music as Heritage … »
at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary

Postgraduate summer course “Music as Heritage: from Tradition to Product. An interdisciplinary course about music as heritage, with a focus on Béla Bartók – theory and practice” at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, June 28 – July 7

We aim to provide insight into the methodology and approaches of modern musicology as an integral part of heritage studies. We use music as a tool for analyzing and describing social changes, the interaction of state policies, culture, cultural heritage, and audience. The course builds on a highly interdisciplinary academic approach to modern musicology. 

The complex theoretical and practical aspects will be taught in the format of lectures, seminar discussions, library research during a 9-day intensive summer course in Budapest. 

The course relies greatly on both CEU lecturers, Bard College and SOAS faculty members, and leading scholars in the field such as Jonathan Stock from University College Cork as well as Martin Stokes from King’s College London.

The course includes a field trip to Skanzen, the Hungarian open-air ethnographic museum in Szentendre. The field trip will provide a unique opportunity to get further insights into both field study and research methods and the real-life experience of traditional music. 

Application deadline: February 14, 2021  / Financial aid is available.
