ANTH 111 - (BH, CC) Culture and Music

Semester Hours: 3
This course uses historical and descriptive approaches to examine various ways people practice and perform music. Using the concept of “soundscape,” and drawing on audio, visual, and live performances (e.g., Mohegan drummers, Scottish fiddle players, etc.), we explore the cultural significance of sound in a number of indigenous societies in Asia, Australia, and Africa, as well as music genres found in the contemporary United States (e.g., Calypso, Mento, Ska, Blue Grass). This class also considers issues concerning the cultural theory of music change, and the ways various styles and genres (e.g., JuJu, Zouk, High Life, hip-hop) are reinvented cross-culturally.
