(I'm new at this so be gentle with me... :) first post...)
I'm close to finish the last year of my BA in Anthropology in BGU, Israel.
I feel, know and want my MA to be in Anthropology of Music, or anything that combines music and anthropology, since it's not really big in Israel, i would like to hear your recommendations about professors or teachers, anywhere around the world that i can contact in order to study my MA in their departments.
And anther thing- if u by any chance heard about some kind of mission/ student groups/ research groups or anything around the world of anthropologist who goes to research and looking for anther pear of hands and eyes... i'd love to join.
(I'm really new in this things, so i'd love any kind of help).
Jah Bless to the world
Hi Hilla Paz
Where does your interest in music/anthropology lie?
I'd recommend Anthropology of music by Alan P. Merriam from 1964 and Musicking by Cristopher Small from 1998 as starter points. Then all further reading has to be based on what you plan to study. I'll have to recommend one of my favorite books that's called Empire of dirt by Wendy Fonarow from 2006.
Again where to study depends largely on your particular interest in music/anthropology.
Hope this helps.
