12.03.2018: "Beyond National Ethnomusicologies: New Developments"

erstellt am 14. März 2018

Guest lecture by Svanibor Pettan (University of Ljubljana)

Svanibor Pettan opened our lecture series on recent trends and new directions in ethnomusicology with a very interesting presentation on new developments beyond different national streams of ethnomusicologies. 



ABSTRACT: This presentation takes as a starting point the two related events in 2007, concerned with national ethnomusicologies in Europe: symposium at the University of Cardiff and plenary session at the 39th ICTM World Conference in Vienna. It is a kind of general introduction to the much needed and appreciated theme of the lecture series at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. Attention will be paid to the still present distinction between folk music research and ethnomusicology, dealt with differently in different European countries. The impacts of three major international associations in our field (IFMC/ICTM, SEM, ESEM) will be discussed with regard to the views of their founding personalities and the current positions. In geographical terms, the presentation will focus on the territories of what was Yugoslavia, pointing to the changes and new directions in music research that can be associated with the achievements of political independence. In addition to the topics outlined by the description of the lecture series, it will use several studied examples to point to the critical, sometimes even oppositional standpoints of ethnomusicologists towards political preferences past and present. On the other hand, it will raise awareness about the contrary trend associated with UNESCO and the involvement of ethnomusicologists in a variety of roles in the Intangible Cultural Heritage agendas. In the final part, trends and directions in Slovenia will be addressed, with special regards to applied ethnomusicology and the ongoing project Music and Ethnic Minorities: (Trans)cultural Dynamics in Slovenia After the Year 1991.
