How does a small minority population create its own “popular music”?
In this course, we will explore the many ways American Jews have
addressed the idea of popular music over the last century. Through a
combination of listening, reading, analysis and discussion, we will
examine how American Jewish communities have adapted popular music
styles, built up music stars, and created music labels and
production companies.
