MUSI 342 - LYRICS AND THE LAW
The course will look at the connection between music and law. We will connect classic jurisprudential schools of thought -- natural law, legal positivism, legal realism, and constitutive theory -- to musical lyrics. Music is one of the most influential aspects of our society and culture and thus, deserves critical attention. This course aims to critique some of the ethnomusicology literature regarding lyrical influences. Additionally, we will introduce sociolegal literature that draws the connection between music and race, gender, class, speech, and privacy.
