Ethnomusicology, Popular Music and Sound Studies

Our ethnomusicological work routinely crosses disciplinary borders. Music as a fundamental musical behaviour is explored bioculturally, historically, and via cutting-edge approaches such as sensory ethnomusicology. Projects with refugees and on musicians from historically marginalised groups bring an urgent political dimension to some of our work in this area.
