Spring 2011 not offered
This course looks at American music in terms of interaction between the overarching superculture and some of the many subcultures, or embedded micromusics, that both bounce off and influence the mainstream.
This course will require a written final paper and several response papers. We will be interpreting music in social and cultural context.
