HISTORY OF DEPARTMENT OF MUSICOLOGY:
For decades, the National Institute of Art, established in 1949 and operating as IS PAN since 1959, had two separate departments focusing on music as their main field of study. These were: The Department of the History of Music (originally the Music Section, for many years the Department of the History and Theory of Music) and the Department of Music Folklore (deriving from the National Institute of Folk Art Studies, established in 1947, which had the status of the Folklore Documentation Section in the 1970s and 1980s). In 1992, as a result of the restructuring of the Art Institute, the two Departments merged into the Department of the History of Music, renamed the Department of Musicology in 2009, with two separate sections: History of Music and Ethnomusicology.
