|Winter Term 2023 Music and Globalization - 1700 - GLST 492
Prerequisites/Notes: MUCO 212 or GLST 100
Catalog Description : How do forces of globalization affect musicians and music-making? How do people use music to make sense of their transnational and cross-border lives and identities? What happens to the meanings in music when it travels across borders and boundaries, is performed by new musicians in different contexts, and is heard by new listeners? What happens to local or ritual meanings when it becomes commodified and commercialized? Do international copyright laws adequately protect composers and musicians when their music travels, and what about when such laws are at odds with local notions of creation and ownership? This course explores answers to these questions through case studies on a variety of musical genres and places around the world.
