Teaching Global Sounds and Arts

Ask me anything   A teaching tumblr for classes I teach in Music (popular, world, classical) and Comparative Arts. If you are a current or former student, I probably won't follow you back unless you explicitly request it.

    We’re watching Do The Right Thing (1989) in Arts in Context today, followed by a discussion of Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (1988).
The late ’80s is probably my favorite topic to teach in this course.

When she saw Narcissus roam alone in the woodsshe was excited at once and secretly trailed, and the closer she followed the hotter she grew, as when sulfur is daubed at the top of a torch and snatches the dancing flames.

    HAL’s deactivation is one of my favorite sequences from 2001: A Space Odyssey. There’s just so much gravitas here.

    We’re covering this on Monday in Arts in Context. Can’t wait!
