Course Description

The guitar, or plucked lute, is the de facto instrument of the masses in the western world. Through lecture, audio-visual screenings, discussion and experiential learning, this course explores the ways in which the guitar and its global variants have given voice to individuals and groups around the world, from ancient Persia and India to Africa and the Americas, and in so doing examines the impact of class, gender, race, politics and commercialization on creative self-expression.
