Duke in London: Arts

MUSIC 216AS

This course surveys London as a site of dynamic cultural production, whose participation in the global marketplace of artistic commodities reveals the city’s restlessly transnational, cosmopolitan character. Studying local institutions, students are introduced to the complex relationship among art, state, and the global cultural marketplace; studying a multiracial and multiethnic community, they become familiar with theories of globalization, neoliberalism, and cosmopolitanism, as well as migration and so-called national identity. Students also participate in excursions including dance, opera, and theatre productions and visits to museums and other sites of cultural importance.
