GSWS075 - JAZZ STYLE & HISTORY

This course examines jazz performance as a twentieth century American musical discourse, one that covers and critiques the standard textbook/mediated narratives of jazz history. One goal of the course is to think about how our knowledge of jazz might be reshaped by including women musicians and gender in the narrative. Another is to begin to think about jazz as a musical language that reaches far beyond the borders of the United States, largely through the networks of the entertainment industry.
