The Music, Language, and Culture Workshop

EthNoise! presents “Fieldwork Adaptations in the COVID-19 Era”


Take a break from refreshing the news and join us tonight at 5:00 pm for a panel presentation on the contemporary challenges and possibilities of ethnographic fieldwork. We’ll be hearing from:

Fiona Boyd: “Negotiating Curatorial and Artistic Relevance through Performance and Space on NPR’s Tiny Desk and Tiny Desk (Home) Concert Series”

Erol Koymen: “Ethnography in Distinctive Virtual Spaces: The 2020 Istanbul Music Festival”

How have music scholars’ research questions and methodologies had to adapt in light of the current pandemic? What new possibilities are afforded by socially-distant approaches to musicking, and what new tools and resources become available or necessary? How has the role of the ethnographer changed in its transition to the virtual realm? Join us on Zoom (password: fieldwork) for a lively discussion of the contemporary moment and its implications for our work as scholars.
