MUSI 345 - DJ CULTURE
The DJ has emerged as a cultural power broker and a new type of musician. This course will explore the history of various types of DJs, and their roles in commercial and pirate radio, disco, hip-hop, house and techno. The DJ's relationships to other cultural icons, and the emergence of turntablism will also be examined. Materials for this course will include the range of recent critical literature, video documentaries such as the films Wild Style and Scratch, audio recordings and eyewitness accounts compiled by members of the class. The aim is to develop and strengthen critical perspectives and their articulation, both orally and in writing, using DJ culture as a setting that is ripe for academic exploration.
