ROCK THE ARCHIVE: POPULAR MUSIC STUDIES AND DIGITAL SCHOLARSHIP
EXAMINES THE INTELLECTUAL PROJECT OF POPULAR MUSIC STUDIES IN RELATION TO THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF ARCHIVE BUILDING, ORAL HISTORY TRAINING, AND DIGITAL SCHOLARSHIP.
“Rock the Archive: Popular Music Studies and Digital Scholarship,” works in conjunction with the Women Who Rock (WWR) Digital Oral History Archive to prepare graduate and undergraduate students to analyze oral histories of a racially and ethnically diverse array of women from the U.S., Mexico and beyond who have made significant contributions to music scenes, social justice movements, public scholarship, and community life. The course examines the intellectual project of popular music studies in relation to the theory and practice of archive building, oral history training, and digital scholarship. Students will engage with critical archive studies, learn about the archive as a contested epistemological site, and create photo essays. In this way students will mesh scholarly work with the production of scholarship in digital form at an introductory level. In particular, they will explore the lives of extraordinary women musicians through primary oral history data contained in the Women Who Rock (WWR) Digital Oral History Archive, an intergenerational experiment in collective and decolonialarchive-building. Students will participate in the 3rd annual Women Who Rock (WWR) “Making Scenes, Building Communities” (Un)Conference, the Digital Oral History Archive Launch and Symposium and Film Festival on March 8-9, 2013. They will also have the opportunity to prepare a panel discussion of their work for the 2013 EMP Pop Conference.
