MUL 1141 - Music Culture as Social Power

Credits: 4
After a general introduction to music, its study, and its basic characteristics, we focus on the regions of the world that politically or geographically have not always been at the center of received histories or contemporary news feeds, but have culturally and musically had an enormous impact on music and, indeed, on human civilization. We learn how it is possible for a nation or ethnic group to identify itself with a distinct music culture as one response to difficulties encountered when trying to define its status historically or in terms of the larger society. We also examine how these subcultures became historically and even commercially successful and ultimately had a great impact in the world of music.
Note: This course is offered on the Budapest campus.
