Primary Instructor:

Non-profit status is granted to the performing arts in the United States on the premise that art is a public good, that it makes our lives richer and thus better citizens. This research seminar interrogates this assumption by examining the role of music in identity, especially but not limited to patriotic nationalism, race relations, community formation, and gender. Held during an election year, we will examine the use of music in political advertising as well.

Course Requirements:

Each student will develop a research project, connected to their individual interests. Activities will include a substantial amount of reading, engaged class discussion, and a visit to Detroit to visit the Mowtown Museum and other cultural centers. Projects will include an original research paper, developed in stages and including a class presentation. There will be no exams.
