Music as Heritage: from Tradition to Product

There is a long tradition of cooperation between ethnography and musicology in Central and Eastern Europe, which has been challenged by modern trans-disciplinary approaches of ethnomusicology. Combined with the extensive experience of CEU’s Cultural Heritage Studies and CEU’s Arts and Culture Center, this course provides an insight into the intangible heritage scene and its most universally accessible fields: music. This course tackles the methods and approaches of modern musicology as an integral part of heritage studies, using music as a tool for analysing and describing social changes, interaction of state policies, culture, cultural heritage and audience, as well as a potent identity marker.

The other major theme of the course is to explore various aspects of musical heritage management creating audience development-focused, yet socially conscious business policies; as well as to present a contemporary and viable approach to responsible arts management. The course includes a field trip providing both a unique opportunity to get further insights into research methods and a real-life experience of traditional music.

The complex heritage aspects of the course will be presented in the format of lectures, seminar discussions, workshops, a field trip and more.
