Catalog Description : This course offers the opportunity to explore music and music cultures in a variety of ways and to increase your understanding of and appreciation for musics from around the world. We will discuss what music means to different people, how this relates to issues of ethnic, national, and gender identity, and how music traditions are changing due to forces of globalization. We will also discuss current ethnomusicological and anthropological theories that can help explain and analyze different contexts and understandings of music and why music is so important in human life. Students will apply these ideas in conducting their own musical ethnographic projects.
