JAN 034 - Social Change Playlist

Lower division

Full credit


MTuWTh, 2:45 PM - 5:20 PM

What does music have to do with social change?  How can a song contribute to political mobilization?  What effect can music have on whether we see ourselves as political actors?  In this course, we will explore these questions and more.  We will learn about the ways that music can promote awareness and action around important socio-political issues including equity education, poverty, civil rights, LGBTQ & gender justice, climate justice, and post-trauma recovery.  We will analyze scholarship in each of these areas while simultaneously holding weekly listening sessions to experience the music and engage in dialogue around its meaning.
