FSDW Intro: Karen Cook

Hi all: 


My name is Karen Cook and I'm assistant professor of music history at the Hartt School, University of Hartford. My main interests are in medieval and renaissance music theory, but I have a strong secondary interest in the use of music to contextualize & create identities, and to that end I explore the relationship between music and age, ethnicity, social/financial status, gender, sexuality, etc. I'm primarily reading others' work this time, but I'm also sharing a very rough idea for a course that would look at music in select television sit-coms (last year I discussed Will & Grace; this year The Cosby Show).
