Jewish Music Resources for Teaching and Research

Tuesday, January 31, 12 PM EDT

This webinar invites Jewish Studies faculty to learn about Jewish music resources for curriculum development and class assignments, or to help students interested in developing projects in Jewish music. There is a wealth of media-based and text-based material available online for teaching and research in Jewish music. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Jewish music research, resources can be difficult to locate, as they are scattered across many different library databases, archives, and subject specific websites. This webinar, which is hosted by the Association for Jewish Studies and is co-sponsored by the Jewish Music Study Group of the Society for Ethnomusicology and the Jewish Studies and Music Study Group of the American Musicological Society, will offer faculty a concise overview of the essential primary and secondary resources they can use to bring Jewish music into any Jewish Studies classroom.
