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."
