Musicology crossing borders

The Grieg Academy’s Research Group in Musicology is dedicated to historical, ethnographic and theoretical approaches to the study of music. Bringing together a range of expertise represented at the Grieg academy – musicology, ethnomusicology, music therapy – the group meets regularly to present current research and discuss new literature.Through presentations, readings and discussions, the group aims to explore musical performance, composition, consumption, and everyday life musical practice, drawing on interdisciplinary debates such as postcolonialism, gender theory, and urban studies. Participants have a range of specialisms in different musical repertoires – popular, jazz, folk, classical – and from diverse geographical contexts, including Turkey, Latin America, Russia, East Africa, the UK, and the Nordic region.
