Berlin Ethnomusicology and the Anthropology of Music Research Group
BEAM is a Berlin-based research group dedicated to the ethnographic study of music. It welcomes local and international scholars and students of various disciplines interested in the social, cultural and political dimensions of music. The group meets Thursday evenings (6-8pm) once a month at different academic institutions around the city. By providing a forum for music scholars to engage in academic exchange, discuss current literature and disciplinary debates, and present recent research, it aims to strengthen a local ethnomusicology community across local Berlin academic institutions, to build connections to a wider international network of ethnomusicologists, and to increase the discipline’s visibility within and expand its impact on local musical, cultural and political life.
BEAM will meet on the following dates of the coming semester:
17.10.13 – Workshop: Music, Power, Politics
14.11.13 – Presentations: Music, City, Urban Spaces
12.12.13 – Presentations
