Winter Academic Term '02 Time Schedule for Music History and Musicology.


It is possible for LS&A students to elect a concentration program in music, and this program is described in the LS&A Bulletin. In addition, music courses are frequently elected by LS&A students not concentrating in Music. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, and Music Theory are elected for LS&A credit. Some of these courses can be used in an area distribution plan. LS&A students may elect music PERFORMANCE courses for degree credit, but this credit counts toward the maximum twelve non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward an AB/BS degree or twenty non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward a BGS degree. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, Music Theory, and Performing Arts Technology are listed in the Time Schedule under the School of Music.

The following courses count as LS&A courses for LS&A degree credit.

This class will examine the intersecting issues of race, class, ethnicity and gender as they are manifested in American musical theater from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. Genres covered will include minstrelsy, burlesque, variety/vaudeville, revue, musical comedy, Hollywood movie musicals, Black Musical Theater, Chittlin Circuit movie musicals, and Yiddish films. The focus will be on how representations of these social categories change in the period covered, and how music is employed to signal various social categories. Also, how is popular song employed in the context of these forms? How does it provide a secondary or alternative commentary to the narrative of the script? How does it operate in non-narrative forms such as variety/vaudeville or semi-narrative forms such as minstrelsy, burlesque, or revue? How are these different forms, and the conventions of representation employed by them, related? Are there cross-genre influences? How can these conventions be seen as influencing contemporary forms with which we are familiar?

The object of the course is the vast corpus of music-theoretical literature from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment. The goal is not just one of developing some familiarity with the content of these early treatises (i.e., with appreciating their argumentative strategies, their relationship with tradition, and their cultural and ideological underpinnings) but also, and more importantly, one of appreciating the extent to which early music theory has affected modern approaches to Western European music of the same period.

Topics will include women as composers, performers, scholars, patrons, and subjects in music. Case studies will primarily be drawn from the 19th through 21st centuries. The course materials will incorporate different genres and styles of music from "classical" (e.g., opera, art song, chamber music) to "popular" (e.g., jazz and blues, rock, and hip-hop).
