MUSC 368 - Ethnomusicology II: Music, Power, and Social Identity (4)

Careful consideration of the connections between the ways a culture’s music is organized and the ways its society is structured. Students will examine musical patterns that have emerged from within a given culture, as well as ones that have resulted from powerful social forces imposed from without. Further, students will consider the changing significance of musics that have been “re-located” whether through migration and diaspora, or through sampling and media circulation. Students may repeat the course as content varies for a total of eight hours. Prerequisite: MUSC 350 or 367. Even years Fall.
