CORE 003 SC - Blues Jazzlines: Past and Present Tense
This course will focus on connections between music and poetry through jazz, a seminal American cultural performance practice. We will initially explore the complex relationship of jazz and blues to Harlem Renaissance concepts of New Negro art, folk authenticity, and modernist cosmopolitanism. Students will then engage in guided listening to music and reading poetry. The blurred boundaries between aural, oral and written art will be investigated within a historical context of past and present cultural practices.
