Popular Music in the Classroom: Essays for Instructors


Add your own review!

Overview

Popular music has long been a subject of academic inquiry, with college courses taught on Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and The Beatles, along with more contemporary artists like Beyonce and Outkast. This collection of essays draws upon the knowledge and expertise of instructors from a variety of disciplines who have taught classes on popular music to explore how music impacts and reflects individual identity and cultural history. Individual essays analyze genres such as American folk, Latin American protest music, and black music; explore the music catalog and socio-cultural relevance of specific artists; and examine how popular music can be used to teach broader issues such as race, gender, politics, and generational differences. Instructional strategies for educators are provided.
