New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


FILM 47.32 Sounds of Totalitarianism and Resistance

This course is dedicated to exploring how twentieth-century music and culture became entangled in the political and social conditions of governments. We will read foundational scholarship in Fascist Studies, musicology, media and sound studies that takes into account the multifaceted nature and deeply rooted legacy of totalitarian states. Our goal is to understand how composers, performers, filmmakers and audiences have reckoned with authoritarian politics and to develop a nuanced understanding of politics’ role in music and media, both historical and contemporary.

Distributive and/or World Culture

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.
