diversitycapebreton.ca – Preliminary Launch & Workshop

A preliminary launch and workshop for diversitycapebreton.ca will be held during the two-day workshop, “Curating Ethnomusicology,” June 15-16th. The workshop will be addressing the role of ethnomusicology and its interlocutors in curatorial practices. This interdisciplinary workshop will provide participants an opportunity to learn about, engage with and discuss a variety of ethnographic media and music curation tools, as well as creative models and issues related to music creation, translating field research, archives, and digital curation.

A range of methods, tools and issues will be explored. Emergent methodologies and practices arising from work with Indigenous communities will also be a focus of the workshop. Jeff Todd Titon, Professor Emeritus at Brown University, will deliver a keynote address on his pioneering research in ecomusicology and collaborative media production in ethnomusicology. Beverley Diamond, Canada Research Chair in Ethnomusicology at Memorial University and President of the Society for Ethnomusicology, will provide a closing plenary.
