Workshop on ‘Ethnomusicology’

Islamabad

December 13, 2019

Rawalpindi: The Department of Anthropology in collaboration with the Department of Urdu and Fine Arts organised a workshop on ‘Ethnomusicology’ here on Thursday.

The workshop was conducted by renowned Anthropologist and Ethnomusicologist Dr. Amelia Maciszewski, who is an award-winning musician, teaching artist, scholar and founder of Sangeet Millennium from USA. She is deeply committed to leading persons of various backgrounds and abilities regarding exploring the diversity of performance traditions in the world.

She expressed her concerns that in Pakistan, Ethnomusicology is an under-developed field and research on music is often brushed off as something not so serious. She said that music must be taught in schools and universities because it develops critical thinking in children and makes them smarter.

The chief guest was Dr. Sarwet Rasul while Dr. Muhammad Bilal Incharge, Department of Anthropology, Dr. Surriya Chaudhary, Incharge Fine Arts Department and Dr. Farhat Jabeen, Incharge Urdu Department were also among the attendees. A large number of faculty members and students from various departments also attended the event.
