ANTHR 2045

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This course will introduce students to the politics, practices, aesthetics, and purposes of North American Indigenous music.  Students will learn about socio-historical contexts of colonization and sovereignty, and how they influence the production and reception of North American Indigenous musical expressions. Other topics of focus will include issues of representation, cultural property ownership, and ethical concerns. Our readings, as well as the music we listen to and see performed, will be organized according to overlapping themes and genres such as "welcoming, asking permission, and thanksgiving," or "revitalization and resistance," and more. Students will learn how music exists as a means to express cultural continuity, and is embedded in and reflective of myriad aspects of Native American social life.

When Offered Spring.
