Fulfills COLL Arts & Humanities

This course will focus on the informal processes through which young
people negotiate “childhood” “tweens” “teenager” and “youth” and as
a means of understanding how they use music in their everyday lives
to construct a status quo as well as resist the dominant adult
culture. The course explores the musical cultures of youth as a
continuum of social processes, created within the context of real,
imagined, and historical communities. The course is not about music
appreciation; rather we will investigate the ways youth create music
and subcultures of musicking.
