SOC 286 - Blues and the Spirit: A Seminar and Service Learning Experience on Chicago Blues and Gospel Music

3 hours
A seminar and service learning opportunity offered in conjunction with a university-sponsored public conference, the Blues and the Spirit Symposium. Students will be required to attend four seminars prior to the symposium and attend all events in conjunction with the symposium, which is normally held biannually in the early summer. Students will be introduced to the legacy of Chicago’s blues and gospel music, its historical and contemporary contexts, and the social and economic environment in which it evolved. They will also be exposed, through the service learning component, to distinguished scholars on African-American music and culture who will present their research at the symposium, and to blues and gospel performances by nationally and locally known Chicago musicians.

Listed also as BWS 286 .

Prerequisite(s): Application and consent of the instructor.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
