WGS 1440 - Gender & Race in Popular Music

This course explores the relationship between popular music, gender & race. To help us unravel these relationships, we consider different theoretical frameworks, including feminist theory, queer theory, critical race theory, & postcolonial theory, to determine how (well) they explain aspects of race and gender in popular music. We’ll read critical interpretations, historical & ethnographic narratives, & analyze related musical & social materials.
