music as social action :: Blog
In our first class, we had an exercise individually and together — an attempt to write down our initial conceptions of what a few foundational terms mean:
socially conscious song
What's similar about those terms? What's different? Are they applied within certain contexts?
A chief goal of this seminar will be to carry forward these preconceived notions and begin applying them to the music and theory we will encounter — and to see what changes, if anything, about them. Will they work the way we think they will? Will they require updating?
Participation! Assist in creating that record by posting the definitions you wrote down during class, in the comments here.
