MUSC 150W-03 and ANTH 150W-04: Hearing and Sound in Latin  America and Caribbean (Iyanaga) 

Voices! Drums! Horns! Firecrackers! Horses! Bells! Cries! Marching! Guitars! All of these sounds, along with so many others, have been a vital part of social life throughout Latin America and the Caribbean for the past five centuries. This course examines the changing soundscapes and “heard worlds” of Latin America and the Caribbean in order to address larger social, historical, and theoretical issues related to the region. By way of aural experiments (such as soundwalks and interactive listening assignments), theoretical texts, and close readings of historical and contemporary descriptions of sound, we will explore Latin America and the Caribbean through a lens of hearing while developing new ways to write about, represent, and discuss sound.
