MUSC 241 - Worlds of Music

Spring (4) Katz, Rasmussen, Staff (College 200, ALV, GER 4B)

This course introduces students to musical cultures of the non-Western world. Topics include: native concepts about music, instruments, aesthetics, genres, relationship to community life, religion, music institutions, and patronage. Course goals will be to develop skills useful for a cross-cultural appreciation and analysis of music, and to bring questions about music into the domain of the humanities and social sciences. (This course is anchored in the ALV domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI domain.)         (Cross listed with ANTH 241 )
