Please join us on Friday, February 3 at 2:30pm in Room 204 of Falvey Memorial Library for the launch of "Music in Twentieth Century American History," our latest Digital Scholarship project. During the Fall 2016 semester, history majors enrolled in Dr. Paul Rosier's Junior Research Seminar at Villanova University embarked on a multi-media and interdisciplinary examination of the cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions of music in American history from the end of the Civil War to the early 2000s. Focusing on the ways in which music reflected and shaped developments in American society -- in particular at the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality -- students analyzed a variety of musical topics from the origins of jazz to the emergence of the Hip-Hop Nation and Rap. This event will provide an overview of the class and a walk-through of the site.
Sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, this event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
