This is a class for those who want to use popular music as a tool to more deeply understand contemporary Korea. The class will address Korean popular music from the turn of the twentieth century to the latest K-pop hits, all while noting the ways that the changing musical tastes of Korean people are linked to historical, social, and cultural shifts on the Korean peninsula as well as music and performance related trends that influenced Korea from abroad. Students are not expected to be deeply familiar with Korean music, history, culture, or language, however, class lectures, activities, and discussions will presume that the average student has some knowledge through previous classes in Asian Studies, following Korean popular culture, or growing up in a Korean family. Instructor: C. Saeji
