This reading-intensive seminar is intended to give you a fundamental knowledge of contemporary intellectual currents engaged with the study of musical practices in Latin America. We will examine major areas that have informed scholarship on Latin American music, including queer studies, performance studies, decolonization/decoloniality project, cultural diplomacy, critical race theory, disability studies, actor-network theory, and Latinx studies. The goal of this course is to gain a better understanding of the web of disciplinary discourses surrounding Latin American music scholarship both in their socio-political context and in dialogue with contemporary research in musicology and the humanities at large.
