ANTH 3203 - Anthropology of Popular Music

Credit Hours: (3)
Description: This course considers the cultural meanings, politics, and experiences of popular music. In this class, we will use anthropological theory to examine key issues in the study of popular music as a cultural artifact including the “popular,” authenticity, appropriation, ideology, high/low art, consumption, performance, subculture, and more. In addition, this class will explore the relationship between popular music and identity (race, class, gender, sexuality) and the processes of social construction and reification. Our aim in this class is to understand and apply anthropological approaches to popular music.
