Critical Studies in Music (mus235)

MUS 235 is required for ICIT students, and open to all other graduate Music students.

Course Description

In this seminar, we will explore a variety of scholarly and theoretical writings on music, loosely grouped around a different theme each week. Instead of focusing on a single methodology, topic or intellectual orientation, we will study works by researchers in diverse fields, highlighting questions that have shaped interdisciplinary discourses around music in recent decades. The goal is to help you improve your ability to analyze and engage with contemporary writing on music and culture.
