Applied Ethnomusicology: Reflections on the Past, Present, and Future

Ethnomusicology Lab

Lecture by Clarence Henry (Ph.D. UCLA, 2000)
Applied Ethnomusicology, Newark, New Jersey

"Having worked in academia and in the private sector of the legal field, I reflect on how ethnomusicology has informed my ethnographic experiences of music and cultures. In this paper, I discuss aspects of my current research project that focuses on the topics of music, law, the courts, ethnomusicology, and ethnographic research."
- Clarence Bernard Henry
