POP MUSIC AND/AS CULTURAL LABOUR
This class takes artists as working people and examines the production of commercial popular music as a set of work processes, focusing on legal, discursive, technological, and economic contexts. We explore the relations of performers—especially recording artists—to their work, their personae, their audiences, and their intellectual property.
