Philip V. Bohlman's impact on the scope and meaning of ethnomusicology is profound. This volume, featuring essays written by his students and peers, honors his enormous contributions to the discipline by focusing on the complexities of encounter. Part I: Ethics addresses scholarship as activism, the power/politics of knowledge, and the ethics of musical practice and performance. Part II: Memory examines commemoration, the nation, and historiography. Part III: Performance interrogates historical, symbolic, and experiential aspects of musical performance, wrestling with enduring questions of belonging.
