This course will focus on music as a community-building practice. Through site visits, readings, listening, discussion, and music-making we will consider questions about the social functions of music-making, explore the corresponding aesthetics and skills, and make case studies of activist uses of music historically and in the present. We will have presentations by people from local community music groups, and students will visit community sites to observe and participate.
