MUSIC 1501 - [This Week in Pop Music]

Offered on demand. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Permission of instructor required. Enrollment limited to: residents of the Low Rises.

C. Appert.

How do pop music trends, scandals, and debates - particularly as played out through social media - offer a window into issues of race, gender, class, and sexuality in American culture? How do arguments about cultural ownership of musical and dance styles, for example, relate to conflicted histories of musical production and consumption in the United States? We will explore these questions through weekly conversations on of-the-moment popular music happenings and through regular critical engagement with pop culture blogs.
