L51 Korean 455Topics in Korean Literature and Culture: Global Korean Music through a Cultural Lens3.0 Units
Description:Contemporary Korean music offers a site to observe dynamic interactions between global and local. Similarities and differences between Korean hip-hop and African American hip-hop, different meanings given to "punk" in a Korean context, and hybrid forms between traditional Korean music and American jazz provoke interesting questions regarding authenticity, style, genre, and geo-social context. While this course provides students with theories and methods used in the study of international popular music, it will focus on how a variety of musical genres are understood and reinterpreted in a Korean cultural context. Through a wide variety of readings, listening, and video screenings, students will explore issues of identity, representation, nationalism, tradition, authenticity, modernity, colonialism, diaspora, transnationalism, globalization, and new media. Active student participation is expected as this is a discussion-intensive course. Successful students will be able to describe aspects of the relationship between musical performance and embodied identities (such as class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality) in relation to the mobility of music. A background in musicology or prior knowledge of Asia is preferred but not required. Undergraduates enroll in the 400-level section; 500-level section is for graduate students only. Prerequisite: junior level or above or permission of instructor.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
