L'appel est étendue jusqu'au 3 avril prochain.


Appel à communications pour une masterclass avec Timothy Taylor à l’université de Mainz du 27 au 30 juin 2018.

The Master Class provides young researchers with the opportunity to present their work, discuss it with leading exponents of their field (Timothy Taylor among them) and relate it to recent developments and debates. We therefore invite researchers with academic backgrounds in anthropology, musicology, sociology or related fields (preferably PhD and postdoc level) to apply for the Master Class.

This year, we will focus on the topic of Valuing Music, and are therefore glad to welcome Timothy Taylor, professor of ethnomusicology and musicology at the University of Los Angeles (UCLA). In a series of three public lectures held on three subsequent days, Timothy Tayler will explore questions of value with respect to music as a form of cultural production. Questions of value have concerned anthropologists for generations. However, only recently there have been concerted attempts to try to formulate a more general theory of value that can encompass both Marx’s and Mauss’s seminal writings. Linking up to this recent work—by David Graeber, Michael Lambek, Fred Myers, Anna Tsing, and others—the lectures explore questions of value with respect to music as a form of cultural production.
