2019/20 Courses

Course Title: Popular Music and Society: Britain and the USA after 1945
Course Number: C2226624
Course Description: The second half of the 20th century witnessed the remarkable birth of a popular culture, driven by teenage musical tastes, greater individual freedoms, increased prosperity and the widening of consumer choice generated by consumerism. Social and economic problems persisted however; continuing international tension caused by the Cold War and linked to the possibility of nuclear Armageddon, racial inequality and violence in the USA, worldwide youth protest against the Vietnam War and the possibility of revolution in Europe. How did popular music reflect this new individualised culture set in the context of such a troubled world?
