MUS 45.04 Music and Social Justice

This course asks what we can do for music and what music can do for the world. Our research and discussions lead us not simply to concrete examples of music functioning as an agent of change, but furthermore to contested notions of what it even means (and takes) to claim that something—society, art, people, culture, values—has undergone notable transformation. How do we think and talk about change via discourses of reform, revolution, rehabilitation, activism, innovation, progress, and productivity? What are some distinguishing features of music and sound that might enable them to serve as flashpoints or vehicles for change? And how might you—in this class and beyond—engage with music and its technologies to fulfill causes most meaningful to you?

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
