Current Issues in Music Hist.

Spring 2021

Taught By: Jasmine Henry

Section: A

CRN: 9906

Credits: 3

This course takes a decolonizing and anti-racist approach to deepen students' critical understanding of Western art, non-Western, and popular music histories within dynamic socio-historical contexts. The schedule of topics is organized thematically, as opposed to the traditional chronological framing of music history, to enable the transhistorical exploration of a diverse set of music-makers, musical styles, sounds, traditions, and repertoires. Drawing from the fields of musicology, ethnomusicology, and performance studies, students will analyze varied music-making practices and contexts through questions of race, gender, genre, place, performance, and other critical issues. By the end of the semester, students will be able to use their enhanced critical listening and socio-historical analysis skills to inform their personal music-making inquires and practices.
