Synopsis: This work, written by ethnomusicologists, considers fieldwork as an issue-laden practice, rather than as a methodology requiring a prescriptive manual. The contributors to this volume challenge the notion of fieldwork: its goals, the nature of knowledge gained in fieldwork and the place of fieldwork in historical studies. The book ranges widely through the history of the discipline of ethnomusicology and the key theoretical issues to be addressed including ethics, politics, gender and relations with the people studied in the contemporary fieldwork environment. It represents the most significant aspects of the new ethnography, shifting the balance away from the data-collecting model of fieldwork toward an approach that is reflexive, humanistic and experiential.
About the Author: Gregory F. Barz and Timothy J. Cooley are both at Brown University.
