    MUS057 PO - Listening to Queer Voices: Radical Identities, Performance, and Transgression in Music, from Hildegard to House

    When Offered: Fall 2021.
    Instructor(s): M. Bandy
    Through directed reading, listening, and in-depth group discussion, this class examines the lives and works of a wide range of musicians and composers who transcend, evade, or otherwise subvert established norms of gender and sexuality in their given context. More than presenting a series of individual case studies, we seek and forge pathways of understanding across time period and national divide, to articulate ways in which queerness, here broadly defined as the experience of ‘otherness’ in gender or sexual identity relative to societal expectations, inevitably enlivens and drives forward the very cultures and characters that ostensibly serve to suppress it. In mapping European and American music’s queer underground, we delve into provocative topics like operatic castration practices, eroticism in convent music, synthesizers and transgender embodiment, David Bowie’s and Prince’s gender-fluid personae, LGBTQIA+ roots of Disco and House (EDM), and more. Open to all students; no prior knowledge of music theory or notation required.
    This course has been revised for fall 2021.

    When Offered: Spring 2021.
    Instructor(s): A. Cramer
    Credit: 1

    The question of music’s relationship with the language faculty has not yet been well answered and continues to be vigorously studied. In exploring relationships between music and language, this course proceeds by comparing the various analytical areas of music theory and linguistics. Students will evaluate a number of claims of relationships between music and language, understand some of the musical, linguistic, psychological and cultural phenomena that have prompted those claims, consider some proposed alternative explanations and develop some promising comparisons further. Students will build their sense about how both music and language work and they will consider the kinds of phenomena that may or may not be classifiable as linguistic, paralinguistic and/or musical. They will get to know more music and develop their abilities as discerning listeners and/or performers of music and language. Prerequisites: MUS 080 PO  and LGCS 010 PO .
