Rhythm of Change: African Music and African Politics

Music NoteRhythm of Change: African Music and African Politics (UNIV 3100) will examine the role of music as a marker and agent in political change in Africa. Focuses on the role of music in African politics across four substantive themes: (1) political and electoral completion in democracies and dictatorships, (2) political conflict, violence and conflict-transformation, (3) identity-building and nationalism, and (4) Western/global cultural and political influence. Combines conventional lecture/readings format with multimedia, classroom engagement with speakers, musical composition and community activism.
