The participants will attend lectures, and study and explore Prague's vibrant and diverse music venues, scenes, and communities.
They will be required to do a small amount of readings, and conduct a mini ethnographic research of one particular local music community.
The lectures will focus on theoretical issues, and on selected case studies dedicated to the following concepts and phenomena: community, subculture, scene, social intimacy, liquidarity, social interactions at music events (audience participation), boundary-making activities (subcultural capital), organizational aspects, and material and discursive dimensions of community-building and community-sustaining efforts of music youth cultures. Moreover, substantial part of the class-work will concentrate on methodological questions, and practicalities of fieldwork research as related to the study of music “community.” Furthermore, the course activities will not only include class work, but also interviews with local music participants, field trips, and participant-observation at local music events.
