JOUR 2226 Writing About Popular Music (Spring: 3 )
Reporting on popular music is a keenly effective way to take a snapshot of culture as it's happening. In this discussion-intensive class, students will get hands-on tips on how to write about music effectively, hone their critical thinking skills, and examine the ways that the business struggles experienced by both music and publishing have affected the way pop writing is disseminated and consumed. Guest speakers from the music writing world will provide further insights on their career paths, their views on where music is now, and the artists and songs that stoke their passion.
