MUB 210 - Global Pop Music

3 credit(s)
The globalization of culture has produced a world that has an uninhibited circulation of people, ideas, and things. There is no better place to observe this “grooving together” of cultures than in global pop music. This course examines the forces that enable the movement of music and musicians around the world and that give global music its persuasive power. Topics include music as expressive culture, music production, ethnicity and identity in pop music, music as symbol, cross-cultural collaborations in popular music, and music as a force that transcends sociological, political, and national boundaries.
