A History of Rock and Roll: Mississippi Delta to British Invasion


Course description

This course focuses on the origins and development of one of the most popular forms of modern musical expression: Rock and Roll.

Topics include the origins of the genre in the southern United States, coming out of a mix of jazz, blues, country and bluegrass music; the commercialization of rock music; the transformation of African-American music for white audiences; the British Invasions; and transnational 1960s youth culture.

Emphasis will be placed on the dual processes of Rock's strong tendency to question the status quo and capitalism's remarkable ability to co-opt this questioning.
