Transcribed excerpt from Katherine Butler Schofield’s presentation speech:

It’s an enormous privilege in this year, of all years, to announce the winner of the 2017 Lois Ibsen Al-Faruqi prize, which is bestowed to recognize the scholarly contributions of an individual music scholar or music institution in the Islamic world. The committee, constituted by Laudan Nooshin as chair […] and other members, which are Jonathan Glasser and myself, we are delighted to award the Lois Ibsen Al-Faruqi prize this year to Amine Beyhom […]. Amine Beyhom is an impressive Lebanese scholar who has taken on a broad comparison project that links musical traditions that are at the historical heart of the Islamic world. He has engaged seriously with a huge geographical and historical range of musical practices, and has built up a broad network of colleagues in the Arabic speaking world and in France. He has clearly had a long-term influence on musicology and ethnomusicology, and giving him this award is both an honor for him, and an opportunity for him to engage more closely with English-speaking colleagues, particularly in the growing field of historical ethnomusicology. And as well as the work in itself, we were impressed by the number and range of letters that we received in support of his nomination. Please, give him a round of applause, in absentia [applause].

Amine Beyhom would like to express his heartfelt thanks to all the persons and institutions who nominated him for this prize.

Traduction de l’extrait (texte de présentation du Prix Lois Ibsen Al-Faruqi 2017 par Katherine Butler Schofield):

C’est un énorme privilège, et particulièrement cette année, d’annoncer le lauréat du Prix Lois Ibsen Al-Faruqi 2017, qui est décerné pour reconnaître la contribution académique d’un chercheur ou d’une institution du monde islamique en musique. Le comité, constitué de Laudan Nooshin en tant que présidente […], et d’autres membres qui sont Jonathan Glasser et moi-même, nous réjouissons de décerner le Prix Lois Ibsen Al-Faruqi à Amine Beyhom […]. Amine Beyhom est un chercheur libanais impressionnant qui a entrepris un vaste projet comparatif qui relie entre elles des traditions musicales qui se situent au cœur du monde islamique. Il s’est impliqué profondément dans un très large panel, historique et géographique, de pratiques musicales et a développé un réseau étendu de collègues dans le monde arabe et en France. Il a clairement influencé durablement la musicologie et l’ethnomusicologie, et l’octroi de ce prix est aussi bien un honneur qu’une incitation pour lui à s’impliquer plus étroitement avec ses collègues de langue anglaise, plus particulièrement dans le domaine en expansion de l’ethnomusicologie historique. Et, autant que par la qualité de l’œuvre en soi, nous avons été impressionné.e.s par le nombre et l’éventail de lettres que nous avons reçues en soutien à sa nomination. Veuillez l’applaudir, in absentia.

Amine Beyhom remercie de tout cœur les personnes et les institutions qui l’ont nominé pour ce prix.
