Upcoming Event

December 5, 2014 - Seminar with Portia K. Maultsby, Ph.D.

Portia K. Maultsby, Ph.D., Laura Boulton Professor Emerita of Ethnomusicology, Professor Emerita of Folklore and Ethnomusicology, Indiana University

"Is It African American or American: Reframing the Critique of Black Popular Music"

The critique of Black Popular music traditionally has derived from the music's production as a mediated commodity for mass dissemination, which de-emphasizes the role of Black culture in shaping the character and function of this tradition.  Referencing selected genres, my presentation will examine Black music as social process-the lived experience that embodies Black social practices and cultural values.  It also will consider the changes that occur in the marketing and representation of this tradition when it enters the commodity system for mainstream consumption.
