Hours & Credits
This course is designed to introduce students to the challenges of listening critically to music in all styles and media, and expressing a considered argument about its cultural significance, aesthetic quality and ideological implications using non-specialist, accessible language. By indicating and exemplifying an appropriate scholarly recourse to today's multi-media resources for musical study and research, it lays the groundwork for on-going investigations of music both as a distinct discipline and an integral component of diverse cultural practices.
