HART307 The Banjo As American Material Culture 3cr


Might an understanding of this musical instrument
expose the American psyche more fully than a
gallery of paintings or book of laws? The
Americanized African instrument remains a potent
icon today and we will explore its varieties of
mythic and material reincarnations,
contextualizing it in historical studies of
labor, race, class, gender, technology and
musicology.
