M&M title
Spring 2018

Gordon Thompson, Zankel 215
Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:00-5:50

An exploration of the relationship between music and the various media through which we consume and discuss music. Among the questions we will consider are...
  1. What does music mean?
  2. How can music shape our interpretations of other expressive media?
  3. What is the purpose of a review?
  4. What is the function of a reviewer?
  5. What role (if any) does censorship have in how we have access to music?
  6. Who owns music?
In our exploration, we will be talking with Skidmore alumni about their careers with music in the media. Semiotics, censorship, and copyright will inform our conversations about how music functions in the context of mass media.
Office hours by appointment.
