Following the great success of the previous two editions of the Music as Heritage course (face-to-face in 2019 and online in 2020), in 2021 our main goal is unchanged: 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 audiences. The course builds on a highly interdisciplinary academic approach to modern musicology, thus, it is open to other fields of study.

This summer the course will place its focus on Béla Bartók, one of the most influential composers of the 20th century and one of the forefathers of ethnomusicology today.

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.

Exploring heritage management

A major goal of the course is to explore various aspects of musical heritage management. The course will place emphasis on audience development through focused, yet socially conscious cultural policies, and will present a contemporary and viable approach to these issues. We will further examine the essential role of music in social engagement and public outreach.

Building on the feedback of previous courses, this course provides an in-depth focus on practical aspects of musical heritage management. This way, participants may benefit from understanding industry trends and events through a data-driven approach and through social analysis.

Online course 

Last year, we successfully adapted our project to an Online Summer Course with an innovative, immersive curriculum, and online teaching methods. If health regulations still will not allow in-person meetings, participants and lecturers will meet online again. The academic program, duration and time of the course will remain unchanged. The traditional lecture format will be replaced by shorter sessions, including multimedia presentations, pre-recorded material, and structured, smaller group discussions. The field trip will be substituted by digital field research, an exciting and innovative research methodology that is a must-know for ethnomusicologists of the information era. All this will be implemented on an easy-to-handle, integrated, multifunctional e-learning platform.

Application deadline: March 22, 2021
