New Course Supplement 2017

MUS 45.09 Music and the Racial Imagination

This course investigates how the construction, imagination, and lived experience of race has influenced musical production, reception, and analysis. We begin by addressing the history of the concept of race, then turn to a series of musical case studies that variously articulate music’s relationship to the construction and negotiation of racial categories. Topics are primarily drawn from the U.S. and include: Asian American hip hop; the “race record” industry; country music and “whiteness,” amongst others.

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.
