Online Session via Zoom
Music has long been a topic of interest for scholars in various disciplines. Their approaches however couldn’t be more different from what the founding father of historical musicology Guildo Adler had envisioned at the end of the nineteenth century. Initially focusing on style and structure of European classical music, the study of music has come a long way and now includes a range of approaches and perspectives. This talk focuses on recent developments in the study of music and its implication in and contribution to the study of people, culture, and society.
音樂是一門很多學者都感興趣的學科。 但是，他們的研究與路向和方法恰恰是與19世紀末歷史音樂學創始人吉爾多·阿德勒（Guildo Adler）所構想的截然不同。 最初的研究集中在闡明歐洲古典音樂的風格和音樂語言結構，但現今音樂研究的觀點及取態已脫離以往集中在音樂語言和為藝術而藝術的枷鎖。 本講座將探討近代音樂研究的發展領域及其對研究族群，文化和社會所作出的貢獻及意義。
