Ethnomusicological Theorizing

(p.1) Introduction
Modeling Ethnomusicology

Timothy Rice

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the history of the author’s writing about the field of ethnomusicology. After placing each of the eight chapters of the book in the context of the author’s life and the history of the field, the chapter concludes with a new section After reviewing the history of the author’s writing about ethnomusicology, the introduction concludes with a new fifteen-item list of the ways ethnomusicologists theorize. Rather than focus on the theories that ethnomusicologists have used to guide their work, the list illustrates the way ethnomusicologists do theory, that is, theorize. The list is grouped into four large categories that move from low-level description and classification to high-level thinking and theorizing: (1) organizing the data, (2) structuring the data, (3) explaining the data, and (4) synthesizing the data.

Keywords:   ethnomusicology, theorizing, models, organizing, structuring, explaining, synthesizing
