Music & Anthropology (M&A) is a new online multimedia interactive=20
journal, founded by the Study Group on "Anthropology of Music in=20
Mediterranean Cultures" of the International Council for Traditional Music=
(ICTM). M&A is hosted by the Dipartimento di Musica e Spettacolo dell'=20
Universit=E0 di Bologna.

We also have links to sites of interest to ethnomusicologists, anthropologi=
and musicologists and your site has been linked. It is for this reason that
we are asking you to create a link to our site.

<A HTTP=3D"">Music & Anthropol=

Music and Anthropology serves as a forum for studies which approach music=
as an essentially human and social expression. The journal is interdiscipli=
and welcomes dialogue not only among the different fields of musical=20
scholarship and the domains of social scientific scholarship, such as cultu=
and social anthropology, but also between music and psychology, folklore,=
feminist and gender studies and so forth. The journal seeks to explore the=
contributions offered by different disciplines through the investigation of=
fundamental questions concerning the human and social dimensions of music.=

The primary geocultural focus of M&A is the Mediterranean. The=20
'Mediterranean', however, signifies not merely a geographical and historica=
region, but also a metaphorical entity with constructed and contested=20
boundaries, cultures,and identities. Mediterranean musics offer special=20
challenges to disciplines situated at the intersection of music and=20
anthropology: in this crucial region, musics of all kinds and throughout th=
world found their origins, came into contact, underwent changes, and often=
were dispersed, despite maintaining a distinctive identity and evolving as =
symbol of difference, local history, and cultural values. By drawing attent=
to the complex phenomena that characterize Mediterranean musics, M&A=20
aims to foster research in the region and to broaden the range of approache=
to music and musical practices beyond the region's borders.
