CORE 003 SC - Collective Songwriting: Theory and Knowledge Production
This course will engage in the study and embodied practice of the collective songwriting method. In this course collective creative expression through song becomes the vehicle by which we will engage in discussions about greater social issues pertaining to gender, race, class, sexuality and nationhood. We consider the historical, political, and economic significance that song has played in social movements through African-American, Chicana/o, Latina/o, Native American, Asian American and poor Anglo communities in the 20th and 21st centuries, and how song has played a vital role in their collective and individual struggle for self determination and social justice in the history of this country.
