Abstract:  
In many areas, there is potential for constructive interaction between humanities and sciences. In practice, successful interdisciplinarity involves long-term interactions between individuals who are internationally recognized experts in specific disciplines. One promising area of interest is ethnomusicology: the understanding of musical cultures in their geographic diversity. What role can psychology play in ethnomusicology? Traditionally, “musicology” focuses on the history of western music, which reflects a long history of disciplinary and racial bias. Much the same applies for “music psychology”, but increasingly musicologists and psychologists are considering music from any part of the world, which is necessary if we wish to make general statements about music or any aspect of it (e.g. musical emotion, or the origin of music). In Graz, we have performed empirical studies to investigate the role of music in the integration of cultural minorities, and the role of music in Islam, employing qualitative research methods which lie between humanities and sciences. Further topics of interest include the evolutionary and cultural roots of (musical) xenophobia, cultural relativism versus universalism (in music research), the challenge of disappearing (musical) cultures, the question of basic versus special emotions in music, bilingualism and bimusicalism, consonance and dissonance in non-western music, and infant musicality. Regarding methods and epistemologies, there are interesting issues surrounding “communities of practice” in music research, interdisciplinary peer-review procedures, parallels between interdisciplinarity and interculturality, and the practical problems of music psychologists who are interested in intercultural issues.
