Soundscapes: Exploring Music in a Changing World

I will ask you questions that will require you to draw directly upon including directly cite and to directly grapple with positions, concepts, and arguments articulated in each of the five books I just mentioned for paper number one, and in each of the four books I mentioned in paper number two.

So once again, doing the reading for this course—all soundscapes shelemay it, and in a timely way—is crucial. In addition, with each learning and contribution reflection soundscapes shelemay, I will ask you to briefly assess how, along with how well, you have been contributing to your own learning and to that of your classmates in the preceding approximately six weeks of the semester.

These papers provide you the occasion not only to show me your learning, but also to advance this, as you most often learn a great deal about something by writing about it.

In addition, these papers provide you the means to demonstrate your critical self-reflexivity, the hallmark of a liberal arts education. As you are assessing your own contribution, you may include thoughts in reaction to issues raised in class discussion that you did not have the opportunity or did not feel comfortable enough to share in class; these additional reflections can help me get a better sense of what you have been thinking about and how you have been responding to soundscapes shelemay discussions, as well as to the readings.

I will take all soundscapes shelemay that into account in determining your learning and contribution grades.

I estimate, as a rough average, you should aim here for an approximate average of 10 to 12 double-spaced typed pages in length or to words for each learning and contribution reflection paper.

Final Project Each student will present her or his work researching and critically analyzing a specific contemporary popular music culture, subculture, period, scene, genre, style, or form of her or his own choice as a final—individual—project, to the class; these presentations will take place through a series of stages in the last three weeks of class sessions prior to the final exam week, allowing for useful feedback and constructive criticism from the rest of the class.

Students will determine the focus of their final projects in consultation with me. You will make use of concepts from readings for this course—and, potentially as well, of other concepts from critical theory, cultural studies, and further readings in popular music studies scholarship.

What you focus on may well be suggested by readings and discussions from earlier in the semester, while the books we will be working with contain abundant material that we will not be directly addressing in class, or only briefly, which you can certainly turn to, and expand upon, in this final project doing so will be most welcome.

Whatever you choose, try to make it as narrow, precise, concrete, and specific as possible; try to make it something you genuinely are highly interested in—and perhaps already highly knowledgeable about; and try to make it something you think you can do a compelling job making sense of in intellectually serious terms.

I will be happy to work with you throughout the process of working on this project, and in fact I encourage you to seek my assistance as you proceed.

Relatively early in the semester I will ask you to turn in a prospectus for your project soundscapes shelemay what specific music culture, subculture, period, scene, genre, style, of form you propose to focus on, how, and why, so that I can give you suggestions and recommendations for how best to proceed with this focus.

You will have the opportunity to present this project in process, in several stages of development, before turning in a final version for a grade. This way you will be soundscapes shelemay to receive constructive criticism from me and the rest of your classmates.

I will soundscapes shelemay further information, instructions, suggestions, and recommendations as the semester proceeds—first for the final project prospectus, and second for the final project itself. And yet once more, although I will not mandate a page or word target or limit, as a very rough guide you soundscapes shelemay think of this as a page double-space or to word average-length paper.

Papers All papers should be typed, double-space, on single sides of standard white letter-sized 8" X 11" typewriter, computer printer, or photographic paper. You soundscapes shelemay use any standard font you wish but your print size must remain between 10 and 12 points.

Pages should be numbered, and your name should be at the top of the first page. The soundscapes shelemay of your paper must be stapled together and you are responsible for doing so; I do not bring staplers to class.


You are also responsible for proofreading your paper before you turn it in; if you catch any typographical errors, you should neatly cross these out and soundscapes shelemay your corrections on top of these with a pen but not a pencil.

I will expect you, furthermore, to observe the rules and conventions of Standard Written English to the very best of your ability in writing these papers, including MLA format for citation and soundscapes shelemay of sources for the argument and research paper.

Plagiarism and Academic Honesty Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are serious offenses. They not only undermine the goal of learning but also are exploitative of the work of others.
