Current State: Published
Course 1004: De-disciplining Music


Course Instructor: Tejaswini Niranjana

This course aims to examine the way music features in different disciplines, and to trace some of the central preoccupations of the study and practice of music in different contexts. We will also explore how older discourses of culture located music, and ask how cultural studies today might investigate those locations. While we will read texts from diverse sources and traditions, the key questions we ask will be anchored by the attempt to fashion a new vocabulary in which to discuss music in India in particular and the contemporary non-west in general.

Students are encouraged to participate in the assembling and curating of the musical material for the course, which will be hosted on a web platform.
