World Popular Music and Identity

Boden Sandstrom
University of Maryland
Hiphop Inclusive
Before 2005

Perspectives of world popular music as contested terrain, in terms of gender, nationality and aesthetics. Students will read case histories of specific movements, social commentaries on genres such as disco, metal and rap, and investigate issues such as accessibility and technological constraints. The unifying factors are cross-cultural gender roles and cross-cultural perceptions and displays of national identity, cultural retentions, stability and change.
