Ethnomusicology, Musicology and Popular Music

The School of Music has an established reputation for research in ethnomusicology, musicology and popular music. These broad areas encompass a number of wide-ranging but interconnected specialisms.

Our research is characterised by a balance of cultural and historical approaches with analytical and critical perspectives. Our research involves a broad spectrum of methodologies, including aesthetic criticism, archival research, cultural theory, digital humanities, editorial research, ethnographic methods, musical iconography, oral history, participant observation, philological inquiry, sketch studies, speech surrogacy, and textual analysis.
