This course focuses on popular music as an arena of socio-cultural and political debate where representation is at stake. Representation refers to a sense of collective attunement through sentience and feeling, aspects that fuel experience and that seek validation in society. Readings from philosophy, sociology, musicology, and media studies provide an interdisciplinary to this study.
