MUSC 169 The Blues: Chicago to the Mississippi Delta


Course requires that students travel to Memphis, Tennessee, and Clarksdale, Mississippi for 5 days to examine the sociological, musicological, and historical relationship between the Chicago (urban) and Mississippi (rural) blues experience. Through lectures, performances, site visits, and keeping an ethnographic journal, students will gather knowledge about rural blues and gain a comprehension of its creation and performance from an ethnographic perspective. Some students may perform on the trip, if the composition of enrolled students allows. Students will write a paper based upon their journals and experiences of the trip.
