Ethnomusicology Roundtable

This series provides an opportunity to discuss theoretical and practical issues outside of class, to workshop student writing, and to invite guests from outside of the program to present ideas in an informal and relaxed setting. One session a year is devoted to practice presentations for the annual conference of the Society of Ethnomusicology. After our discussions we almost always move to strengthen our bonds of kinship somewhere off campus with food and drink! Recent visitors include Marié Abe (Boston University), Tala Jarjour (Yale University), Andrew Jones (UC Berkeley), and Maria Sonyvetsky (UC Berkeley), among others. If you would like to be added to the Ethnomusicology Roundtable email list, please write to Prof. Joshua Pilzer.
