ANTH 3032 - Sounds of Protest

Goals: This class will introduce students to the connections (both historically and cross-culturally) between social protest, music, and sound-making practices. Primarily we will examine how people have used music and sound as mediums of social protest as well as the ways in which governments have deployed these same mediums as counter-insurgency tactics. Ultimately, our goal will be to place sound and sound-making approaches at the center of social protest activities in order to understand them both as objects of analysis and as tools for broader engagement.

Content: Reading assignments, videos, active listening exercises, and lectures will provide students with an understanding of the connections between sound and social protest. Students will also be asked to create their own sonic interventions through the digital recording and manipulation of sound.
