This course will use tango music, literature based on tango, and academic articles on the subject to explore Argentine history, society and culture. Initial analysis will focus on Argentine history, paying particular attention to immigration and the racially hybrid lower and working class structure that fused into a new culture with its own musical expression. Specific areas of study include gender roles and power structure, the morality of tango, and the projection of the "Argentine" character through tango lyrics. The course will conclude with new forms of tango in the international scene, how they have been marketed and modified for a new public.
