The Department of Dramaturgy and Musicology is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University. There are about 30 researchers, teachers and PhD students affiliated with the department, 18 of whom are tenured. They teach and supervise more than 400 students of musicology and dramaturgy.
The department is located in the beautiful old barracks on Langelandsgade, where there is a vibrant environment for both teachers and students alongside the other aesthetic and artistic subjects.
The researchers at the department work with researchers from other departments in cross-disciplinary research programmes such as: Cultural Transformations; Fiction and Fictionality; Modernity and Cultural Transfer; Globalisation, Migration and Memory; and Mediality, Materiality and Aesthetic Meaning.
The department’s teachers and researchers are very involved in cultural activities and have strong relationships and partnerships with institutions of culture such as the European Capital of Culture 2017, ILT, the Odin Theatre, the Aarhus Vocal Festival and the SPOT Festival.
