This is a pilot course that experiments with multimedia lectures and podcasting as ways to introduce the social history of key Latin musical styles. Students download listening and video-viewing assignments to their computers or MP3 players, and write about both these assignments as well as their assigned readings. Listening and viewing is paired with analysis of the social contexts and social meanings of musical production and consumption. Students consider how “Latin” musics emerged from persecuted Afro-diasporic musical styles into (often shallow) celebrations of mixed national identity. They will see how music is entangled in the international interplay between colonizing audiences and exotic racial others, but is often also a basis for interchange in a Black Atlantic and oppositional social identity among Latino migrants in the United States. In short, viewing Latin music in social context means thinking about music as a complicated site for the working out of colonialism, international cultural markets, race, and ethnicity.
