Course Description Recent trends in musicological studies have included a greater emphasis on the study of translocal cultural formations, social processes, and musical idioms, as well as on the processes of globalization and intercultural exchange, and less emphasis on geographical specificity. This graduate seminar will explore the implications of this shift by examining how various scholars have approached “the Caribbean” through locally situated research and how they have engaged with locality, transnationalism, and the conditions of coloniality and post-coloniality? We will consider what value “area studies” still holds in musicological research?  How does one identify an “area” in globalized spaces? And more generally, how and where do we locate “the Caribbean”?
