ANTH 311 - Global Musics and Cultures (3 credits)

Music performance offers a unique, yet crucial site for interrogating the underlying social values and systems of meanings of a society. Through music, conceptualizations of race, class, gender, and other identities are constructed, contested, and displayed. This course examines diverse musical practices from around the world. From an ethnomusicological perspective, we will explore music as a complex enactment and symbol of culture within which and through which artistic, economic, political and other social values are crafted. FORMAL TRAINING IN MUSIC IS NOT REQUIRED FOR THIS COURSE. F, S, Su.
