Course Description

MIT 3353F (Fall 2013)   Popular Music and Identity

Instructor: N. Coates

Course Description
Liz Phair's 1993 recording Exile in Guyville was upfront in acknowledging what female and male fans of popular music, especially rock'n'roll know but don't necessarily want to admit: rock'n'roll is a "guy thing." But is it? This course explores meanings, constructions and representations of gender in popular music of the 20th and 21st centuries, including but not limited to rock'n'roll. The course is taught from a media studies perspective, so no formal musical knowledge is expected.
