Music as History: Histories of Music

This course explores how and why it is that we, as individuals and communities, read, write, and interpret histories to justify our love of or identification with musics and sounds. The purpose of this class is to learn how we can use music history- including the methods and tools of musicology and music historiography- to empower and liberate our sense of self, our identities, our communities, and our values.
