Subject: BS: Distance Learning MA British Trad Music
From: GUEST,Fay Hield

Dear all,

Not directly song related, but hopefully of interest...

At the University of Sheffield we are launching a new MA programme, to be studied by Distance Learning, focusing on the Traditional Music of the British Isles.

The course follows a very successful programme we run on World Music Studies, where people travel from all around the world to share experiences through the week-long residentials with us.

I shall post the link to the department web pages here, and any enquiries should be made to the course director, Andrew Killick (a.killick@shef.ac.uk)as I can't categorically give answers to individual questions. In general though, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore whatever area of British Trad music you are interested in. The work is academic in nature, with fieldwork opportunities - it is not a performance based course, though of course performance can be analysed and written about.

I hope it's of interest to some of you, though I'm sure it will open a can of worms around the legitimacy of studying folk musics - that, I'm afraid, I don't have time to go into in detail here, so I'll make my apologies in advance!

All the very best,
Fay

Thank you, Fay. I'd sign up in a heartbeat, but would have no way to attend the residential sessions. It's a fine opportunity for those who can take part.

That looks brilliant! Sadly I would have no chance of affording the fees, but I wish you all the very best.

Might someone remove the BS tag please? I can hardly think of a more inappropriate use.



Taken care of. --mudelf

Well, that thread title got my attention! Too bad it's not really an on-line course. I'd be interested if it was. A week in Sheffield isn't distance learning and makes it impossible for almost everyone in the world.

Just started my PhD so this'll be next in line.
