The “erm-BYAH!-O O O “: Singing Through Life practicum course aims to provide students the opportunity to look critically at themselves and their world through the lens of performance ethnography.
This course will guide students to:
- Recognize and identify diverse forms of musical engagement,
- Assess, for themselves, the role that singing (and the voice more broadly) plays in their lives,
- by way of self-reflective and critical ethnographic engagement and data gathering,
- exposure to diverse perspectives and contexts,
- and thorough comprehension of central texts,
- understanding that each student will come to their own unique conclusions.
- Consider the broader impact of music-making on human societies, and
- Create and curate multi-modal ethnographies for public audiences around their findings.
This section contains each iteration of the course syllabus, student-produced ethnographies sorted by term, and insights into the methodology used for course projects.
