This course spends 8 weeks on early blues and country roots music (like Bessie Smith and Woody Guthrie) of the 1920s-1950s before turning, in the last third of the semester, to the 1960s revolutions of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and other rock & roll legends. The format is informal lecture and discussion on Tues/Thurs afternoons plus a required film screening and discussion every Wednesday evening, 6:30-9:20pm. Besides reading 3-4 books and many articles, assignments include weekly music listening, four short essays and a longer final paper.
