Introduction to Folk Music Studies|
The course moves out from accepted ideas of folk music as a contemporary genre to its roots and offshoots, including materials from Anglo American, European, and Afghan sources, among others. Live, recorded, and filmed versions will be included, with work ranging from creative writing through miniresearch projects and a final paper.
