MUS 14.04 Music, Healing, and Health Equity in Cross-Cultural Perspective

This course explores from different disciplinary and cultural perspectives how music affects the body and the brain, and how culturally-rooted music therapies have leveraged the power of community in the service of socially inclusive health equity as a cultural practice. Case studies address sound and music as a therapeutic agent among Indigenous peoples in North America and Siberia, Sufi healing rituals and sound yoga in India and Pakistan, the theory and practice of music therapy in China, sacred bata drums of Cuban Santeria, and new technologies of sound and music-based healing that work across class, race, and gender to provide access to health and wellness.

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.
