About this product
- DescriptionEthmusicological fieldwork has significantly changed since the end of the the 20th century. Ethmusicology is in a critical moment that requires new perspecitves on fieldwork - perspectives that are t addressed in the standard guides to ethmusicological or anthropological method. The focus in ethmusicological writing and teaching has traditionally centered around analyses and ethgraphic representations of musical cultures, rather than on the personal world of understanding, experience, kwing, and doing fieldwork. Shadows in the Field deliberately shift the focus of ethmusicology and of ethgraphy in general from representation (text) to experience (fieldwork). The new fieldwork moves beyond mere data collection and has become a defining characteristic of ethmusicology that engages the scholar in meaningful human contexts. In this new edition of Shadows in the Field, rewned ethmusicologists explore the roles they themselves act out while performing fieldwork and pose significant questions for the field: What are the new directions in ethmusicological fieldwork? Where does fieldwork of the past fit into these theories? And above all, what do we see when we ackwledge the shadows we cast in the field? The second edition of Shadows in the Field includes updates of all existing chapters, a new preface by Bru Nettl, and seven new chapters addressing critical issues and concerns that have become increasingly relevant since the first edition.
