COURSE Code: HUMA 041
Popular music and film are media that provide artists with a vehicle to respond to their world. Like other aspects of our culture, popular music and films have evolved dramatically since the Second World War. The political upheaval, social unrest, and scientific advances that we have seen since WWII have profoundly affected our lives.
The course will examine both the artist?s response to various issues and events, as well as the evolution of some of the more technical aspects of these two art forms. Throughout the course, the instructor will focus on the contributions and significance of the work of a number of major artistic figures in popular music and the cinema.
Students who have taken HUMA 028 Popular Culture cannot take this course.
