Taught by

This course will explore U.S. popular culture of the 1970s through a number of the decade’s seminal albums. These may include The Beatles' Let It Be , The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street, Led Zeppelin IV, Ramones, Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark, Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life, Steely Dan's Aja, and Patti Smith's Horses. Our texts will include each album’s counterpart from the 33 ⅓ music book series. The final project will be a similar close reading of another 1970s album. Students interested in expanding their final projects into a major piece of music writing—à la the 33 ⅓ series—can develop Individual Learning Contracts for additional credit during second session.
