Latin American History Through Popular Music

MLL 321, Section 1U
Term: Summer A
Days/Times: Monday & Wednesday 5:30pm - 9:05pm
Room: Dooley Memorial 214
Professor: Delia P. Fuentes Korban
Course Overview: Music carries the stamp of its present, in therms of production and content. The scope of this course is to study the lyrics of songs as tests that can provide an insight to historical moments in which they were created while capturing the feel of its people. The way in which song-writers portray, remember or commemorate (events or people) through their compositions can also provide a counter-narrative to an official historical one. At the same time, some productions persevere in a society's musical tradition because they have intrinsically become a site of its memory (lieu de memoire, Nora). Since the historical archive and musical expressions are wide and rich in Latin-American continent, the course will focus on a select number of the historical actors and moments that have left a musical imprint in its cultural production. Students should expect to read book chapters/articles/excerpts, and complete listening/viewing samples for each class session.
Note: Although the course is taught in English, the music we will hear and analyze in class will be in other languages (i.e. Spanish, Portuguese). However, translations of the song texts will be provided.

Class Note: For BGS / Continuing Studies Students Only
