AMST 395 - American Music and Culture

(3.00)
This interdisciplinary course explores how to write about one of the most important expressive forms of American culture: music. Rather than survey a history of musical genres and personalities, students in this class will analyze the relationship between music-making as a social practice and the creation of various “American” communities. Too often, our writing and our listening skills are passive. Critical thinking, reading, and writing skills are at the core of this course. Recommended Course Preparation: One lower-level social sciences or humanities course focused on American society or culture.
