MUSI269 Global Pop

A critical study of the global phenomenon of popular music.

This paper examines how popular music is consumed, and produced around the globe. While world music flows through different routes and has distinct meanings in each of its contexts, a critical examination of the place of its consumption can help us understand the reasons why such music is so often found out of its original context. Major themes to be covered include the global music industry, world music as a genre, and how music is used to represent cultures. This paper is in the cultural studies strand of Music papers and builds on the ideas introduced in MUSI 103 Music in Popular Culture and MUSI 104 Music in World Cultures.
