[MUSI 160] Music Cultures of the World

This course introduces students to some of the primary concerns of the field of ethnomusicology, as well as to a sampling of musical genres from North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Through a selection of listenings and readings from music scholarship, anthropology, and critical theory, we consider themes including nationalism, colonialism, identity [race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, class, etc.], sound/soundscape, and inter-disciplinarity.
