Description

This course examines musical creativity with an emphasis on nearby places (the United States) and recent times (the late-20th and 21st centuries), while highlighting the analytical and research skills needed to ask and answer questions relevant to the history and social import of music as an art form. The course explores questions of how music has served as an expressive tool for individual creativity, identity formation, placemaking, and political commentary. Music is interrogated not as an isolated object, but as a social activity in a community context and as a catalyst for social change. Musicology 140 strives to inspire active and creative engagement with the ideas and events of the musical past to fuel the imagination of artists hoping to contribute to a fuller present and richer future. Identity and race are major themes, as the many peoples and cultures within the United States are what makes its music distinctive and inspiring. The course builds on the ideas introduced in Musicology 139 and works to prepare students for the one-year Western music survey of Musicology 239 and 240.
