ENG 315-11 The Cultural Poetics of Rock and Roll 3 sem. hrs.
H3: Over the past fifty years Rock and Roll has emerged from an adolescent craze into a major cultural force in American (and World) culture. Rock and Roll has become a complex interdisciplinary, multimedia field in itself-involving elements of music, poetry, multicultural social commentary, performance art, fashion, recording technology, film and video technology, and marketing demographics. This course will pursue a serious interdisciplinary analysis, seeking to account for the social impact of rock and roll by examining the several cultural "languages" which coalesce to create this highly complex media form. Fulfills Heritage III requirement. ENG 102 or HON 103 competency required. Next offered SP-14, SP-16.
