This course will examine anthropological perspectives on dance and its role in social life. We will also consider the growth of ethnological scholarship on dance since Gertrude Kurath's pioneering essay, "Panorama of Dance Ethnology." We will then focus on recent interdisciplinary trends in dance and performance studies, by reading major monographs such as Jane Cowan's "Dance and the Body Politic in Northern Greece" (1990), Cynthia Novak's "Sharing the Dance" (1990), and Marta Savigliano's "Tango and the Political Economy of Passion" (1995). Student projects will involve ethnographic study of dance communities on the Internet, and around themselves.

Prerequisites & Distribution: Graduate standing. (1-3).May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (1-3; 1-2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~claguem/courses/usclassical/

We will explore the history of the Western European classical tradition in the New World through discussion, listening, role playing, and a class research project, culminating in an afternoon symposium. Material covered will balance the history of American composers and their works with the sometimes awkward, sometimes apparently natural, position of classical music in American culture. Issues of American identity, gender, race, and social class will be addressed in depth.

Although the ability to perform is not required, participants will be encouraged to share their musical skills in class and during an evening recital that will introduce music of the colonial and experimental traditions. Students will be able to substitute a performance with commentary for a formal written paper.

Research teams of three to four students will address a topic area within a class-wide symposium titled, The Future of Classical Music in America?" Each team will design, execute, and present a study of classical music in contemporary American society, focusing on a core issue, such as audience, performance, composition, education, presentation, technology, and economics. Each project will be made part of the class Website and presented to the class along with invited guests in an afternoon meeting, organized and executed by the class. Collaborative teaching technology will be used extensively in the course. All participants should have a University of Michigan email and ifs account, a web browser with Real Audio, and word-processing software, preferrably MSWord. All of this software is available at University computing sites across campus.Students will be asked to participate in a voluntary and anonymous assessment study to measure the effects of technology on the learning experience.
