Music and anthropology. Journal of Musical Anthropology of the Mediterranean

Updated on 22/04/2009

Music and Anthropology is an online multimedia peer-reviewed journal promoted by the Study Group on "Anthropology of Music in Mediterranean Cultures" of the International Council for Traditional Music. It is published annually since 1996. Music and Anthropology serves as a forum for studies which approach music as an essentially human and social expression. The journal is interdisciplinary and welcomes dialogue not only among the different fields of musical scholarship and the domains of social scientific scholarship, such as cultural and social anthropology, but also between music and psychology, folklore, feminist and gender studies and so forth. The journal seeks to explore the contributions offered by different disciplines through the investigation of fundamental questions concerning the human and social dimensions of music. The primary geocultural focus of M&A is the Mediterranean. The 'Mediterranean', however, signifies not merely a geographical and historical region, but also a metaphorical entity with constructed and contested boundaries, cultures, and identities. By drawing attention to the complex phenomena that characterize Mediterranean musics, M&A aims to foster research in the region and to broaden the range of approaches to music and musical practices beyond the region's borders.
