Music 309. Music Nationalism and Identity

This course examines the crucial role played by music in the construction of individual, community and national identity in the 19th and 20th centuries. Through the lens of art, folk and popular music traditions, we will study music “revivals”; the role played by music in nationalist movements in Europe, the Americas and Asia; and the culture clashes that occur when musical systems encounter each other.
