This course examines the role of music in the construction and reinforcement of identities.  It considers a range of socially constructed concepts including race, gender and ethnicity. Additionally the political, national, religious, colonial and diaspora contexts are also considered in music identity and expression. This course explores these cultural contexts in order to better understand music and identity, and the insights they provides to examine and reflect on global societies and cultures. Examples and case studies are drawn from music’s across the globe, including Europe, South Asia, Oceania, Africa, the American continents and Caribbean Sea.
