Music and Public Life
MUSC 296
Fall 2012
Section: 01  

Everyone experiences music individually, but taken together, music deeply affects public life. It is a collective voice that enlivens communities, in good and hard times. It is also a medium through which local and national governments, NGOs, and corporations exercise authority and channel capital as "cultural heritage" or product, as well as being a focus of public discourse, from the sciences to academia to journalism. Weekly topics, events, and visitors will consider many facets and bring students into community interaction.
