MUSI 005A. Music and Dance Cultures of the World


(Cross-listed as SOAN 020D )
In this course we take an ethnomusicological approach to examine music and dance cultures from around the world. We will consider music and dance both in and as culture with attention to social, political, and historical contexts. Topics will include identity, race, ethnicity, gender, class, religion, memory, migration, globalization, tourism, and social and political movements. The course will provide an opportunity to develop critical listening and analytical skills to discuss sound and movement.
