New Course Supplement 2016


AAAS 88.14 Cities, Subjects & Sonic Africa

This course poses the questions: What has been the role of musical expression in shaping the experiences of Africans throughout the world? How does sound function as a site of socio-political contestation that reflects and shapes ideas about race, identity, place and belonging? To answer these questions, we situate specific ethnographic case studies within an interdisciplinary framework. Texts, performances, media, and experiential workshops all form an integral part of this course.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:ART; WCult:NW

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.
