ANTH 381 - Music and Society 3 hours


This course explores music as a social and cultural activity. Taking a global, comparative, and inter-disciplinary approach (sociology and anthropology), it investigates the social dimensions of the production and reception of music. Particular attention will be given to issues of race, gender, identities, and technology. How do music and societies mutually influence and shape each other? How is music related to people’s sense of identity, socio-economic structures, and beliefs? Music will be explored as an art form that both reveals and serves as a medium of social change. Prerequisites: Junior standing. Cross-listed as SOCI 381 .
