History of Rock & Roll

The course will follow the evolution of rock & roll and how it both reflected and altered the social fabric of this country. After WWII America began changing in fundamental ways that included the emergence of a youth culture, the civil rights movement, shifting attitudes about sexuality, and rebellion against authority. Rock and roll became the perfect vehicle to articulate this transformation. In the course we will explore many questions and contradictions about our culture that it expressed. We will consider the fact that rock and roll might, in the end, just be a reflection of us, but said loudly and without saying “Please”. We will also listen to a lot of good music..
