Central European University Offers Postgraduate Summer Course on Music as Heritage

Professional Opportunities

From June 28 to July 7 in Budapest, Hungary, the Central European University (CEU) will offer a postgraduate summer course titled “Music as Heritage: from Tradition to Product. An interdisciplinary course about music as heritage, with a focus on Béla Bartók – theory and practice.”

The course aims to provide insight into the methodology and approaches of modern musicology as an integral part of heritage studies. It uses music as a tool for analyzing and describing social changes, the interaction of state policies, culture, cultural heritage, and audience.

The course builds on a highly interdisciplinary academic approach to modern musicology.

The complex theoretical and practical aspects will be taught in the format of lectures, seminar discussions, library research during a 9-day intensive summer course in Budapest. 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.

The course includes a field trip to Skanzen, the Hungarian open-air ethnographic museum in Szentendre. The field trip will provide a unique opportunity to get further insights into both field study and research methods and the real-life experience of traditional music.

Application deadline: February 14, 2021 Financial aid is available.
