MUS 17.05 The Poetics and Politics of Sounds and Words

This course explores how music and language shape our social worlds and help us imagine new futures. Students will study how music and language are summoned in the service of power but are also used by people to craft and express their own personal and political identities and experiences. The course is designed to give students an introduction to anthropological approaches to language, music, and the dynamic relationship between them in a variety of cultural contexts.

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.
