Rhythm, Meter, and Melody in Persian Sung Poetry

Monday, September 19, 2016 @ 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location: Orwig Music Building, Room 109

Ethnomusicologists are commonly engaged with several modes of theorizing, perhaps including (1) those of the performers who have taught or spoken with us in the course of our fieldwork; (2) those we became familiar with early in life; (3) innovative work by our contemporaries in various fields of inquiry; and (4) older traditions of theorizing we come to recognize as relevant to our research interests. This talk considers issues that arise in drawing on such diverse modes of theorizing in analysis of Persian sung poetry.
