The Appeal of Transgressive Music

This is a past event.

As part of Family & Friends we are featuring via an Academic Highlight, Professor David Sanford. Join this interactive lecture -- Works by George Frideric Handel, Ma Rainey, Nina Simone, and Public Enemy will be discussed -- without profanity -- in the context of their widely disparate depictions of unpleasant subject matter, subversive messages in the social climate of their respective times, and/or their blunt, outspoken opposition to the status quo and authority, as well as why we still listen to them.
