Visual Studies 185X: Songs & Places: México

Visual Studies 185X: Songs & Places: México
SP 2016 / 4 units / CCN 04253

A special course in the Visual Studies Program involving music, cultural history and the visual arts. Of particular interest to students with Spanish language background. Many of you have grown up with this music--but not so many know where it comes from or how it's evolved--the performers, the traditions, the way the songs dovetail with the culture in general. These are beautiful and engaging questions. That's why the course--which also offers a kind of forum or meeting space (hogar cultural) for students with roots in México and Latin America as a whole. And a chance to challenge yourself through the artwork you make in response.

Interested students should read the extended course description, CED/Visual studies Courses/SP2016 and contact Anthony Dubovsky directly: chambersstreet@hotmail.com.
