MUSC 133

Popular Music

This course allows students to examine U.S. popular music while exploring the question, "as historically situated expressions of cultural values, what does this music tell us about American life?" Topics include the intersection of music with a wide variety of social issues - involving gender, race, class, politics, religion, sexuality, and more - enbedded within particular historical and cultural contexts. Offered alternate years. III.W, V.6a
