A Cultural History of Rock'n'Roll
Taught by E.A. Burlingame
E.A. Burlingame is a medical anthropologist, artist and educator who has been teaching people of all ages for a decade. Professor Burlingame's education philosophy is that learning is culture. Her teaching practices are steeped in active learning and laughter.
Since its official "birth" in 1955, the music called rock has marked itself as an expression of rebellion for generations.
In this class we will be using an anthropological lens to explore the cultural and political history of rock'n'roll as it has been created and experienced in America. We will also take an historic journey through some of the sights and sounds of this influential musical genre.
This class will include activities, lecture and discussion.
