|MUSC 1139 - Popular Music, Sexuality, and the New Global Order|
Introduces critical debates on the role of sexuality, focusing on a number of popular music or artists from around the globe—the transgendered pop of Saida Sultan/Danna International; dance and the body politics in post-Suharto Indonesia; and the intersection of sex, nation, and religion in Turkey—to explore the continuously changing categories of gender and sexuality in the processes of globalization. Sexuality is central to popular music because of the way in which it is enacted and embodied by performers and also interpreted by the audience. Although conventions and customs of local cultures and/or societies continue to inform popular music, globalization has opened up spaces in which it is possible to rearticulate gender and sexual identities.
