Cíle předmětu
This course is a survey of the history, development and social resonance of rock and roll, from its roots in the late 19th and early 20th century up through the 1990s. The class will introduce the student to, and/or provide some depth of awareness about, a roster of major figures and trends in rock and roll. It will consider the art form as a still young and evolving means of expression. It will explore how it has influenced social and cultural environments and how it has been influenced by them. How the individual student relates to rock music will form an important component of the course and will be examined through ongoing discussion and project work.
Metody hodnocení
Reading and Listening: All of the assignments listed above (i.e. the reading assignments and the listening/viewing assignments on You Tube) will correspond directly to in-class lectures and discussions. As such, students will be expected to be thoroughly prepared to participate in discussions for all classroom sessions. Text (required): The History of Rock & Roll by Thomas E. Larson, 3rd edition. Final Paper: The final paper must develop an argument that is well-supported (via sources) as to which artists (whose debut post-dates 1990) are likely to endure and result in true historic impact. As an alternative, students may write about the future of the music industry, using Chapter 14 as a framework but, again, making use of outside sources. Topics for the final paper must be approved by the instructor by the date indicated in the calendar above. Final Take-Home Exam: In Week 15, students will be provided the questions for a final take home exam that will focus exclusively on Chapter 13. Students may opt to submit written assignments in hard copy or digitally but in either case, no later than 11:59PM on the date of the final class meeting in Week 16. Digital copies should be sent to gterruso@uarts.edu . Class Participation 20% First Exam 20% Second Exam 20% Final Take Home Exam 20% Final Paper 20%
