Music Z415 (#14076): CONNECTIONS: Music-Art-Literature  [Wed., 6:45-

This class will explore interrelationships among the arts—music,
literature, art, and multimedia.  By the end of the semester you
should know and understand how the various arts influence each
other, and are in turn influenced by the culture and temper of the
times they reflect.  You should be able to address matters of style,
deep structure, form, and texture considered in the context of a
historical survey from the Renaissance to the present, with emphasis
on arts of the 20th and 21st centuries.  Upon completion of the
course, you should be able to recognize the style, meaning, and
context of works from each of the periods and media studied, and to
understand how each medium reflects, defines, and contributes to the
culture of the time.

Opportunities to demonstrate your comprehension will be provided
through quizzes and papers that allow you to extrapolate class
materials and stylistic attributes to new works not studied in
class.  An after-hours private tour of the IU Art Museum collection
will be a feature of the course.
