Catalog Description : An examination of the historical development of a single genre, stressing the effects of societal changes. Topics in this series vary from year to year. May be repeated with consent of instructor.

Topic for Fall 2014: Music and the Fairy Tale
This course will explore the ways that music embodies, constructs, deconstructs, interrogates, and communicates values and meanings in a variety of fairy tale contexts in popular and classical realms.



Topic for Spring 2015: History of Recorded Sound
Since the late nineteenth century, the history of music has been tied inextricably to the history of recorded sound. In this course, we will consider the ways that the experience of recorded sound, from the earliest days of the recording industry to the iPod era, has shaped past and current practices of listening, performing, and contemplating music. Specific topics include: the development and cultural history of recording and playback technologies, recordings as documents of changing practices of classical music performance, tape music composition, sampling, and turntablism.



Topic for Spring 2015: The German Lied and National Identity
In this course, we will examine Lieder from the 18th to the 20th centuries from a socio-cultural perspective to explore the multiple ways that the genre has been bound up with German national identity.



Topic for Spring 2015: A History of Early Music Revivals
This course will examine when, where, how and why musicians have revived musical works and practices from the period roughly encompassing 800-1750 AD. In addition to studying early music movements, students will explore issues of performance practice and presentation by performing early musical works of their own choosing.
