Project Goals

The goals of this project are as follows:

-To create a dynamic and evolving catalog of musical and cultural diversity in the Michiana region that can 1.) document and archive the work of local performers and practitioners; 2.) use music as a tool to expand understanding of cultural similarities and differences among Michiana residents, and thus 3.) serve as a resource for students, faculty, and the local community

-To provide undergraduate students at Saint Mary’s College with hands-on experience conducting ethnographic research in their local communities, thus 1.) expanding their understanding of the myriad ways in which music and performance influence everyday life; 2.) introducing students to the musical and cultural diversity in their local communities, and 3.) encouraging mutual collaboration and increased interaction between students at Saint Mary’s College and the local community
