Materials for Week 6

For week 6, we begin our 3-day examination of music and revolution in France. For Monday, we will read Herbert Schneider’s “The Sung Constitutions of 1792,” an examination on music an propaganda in the late 18th century. It’s difficult to overstate the importance of the French Revolution. Despite ending with Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo, its effects were felt all the way through World War I (including countless additional revolutions in France and elsewhere).

For Thursday, we’ll be reading the first chapter from Eric Drott’s Music and the Elusive Revolution on the May 1968 protests. We’ll be continuing our examination of the effects of May ’68 in Week 7 as well.

ETA: Updated Music for Monday is available here.
