Instructor: Dr. Virginia Whealton (
Location: School of Music M222

What exactly is nationalism? How has music shaped the development of nationalism, and vice versa? Why can musical nationalism--like nationalism itself--be both powerful and controversial? 
We'll explore all these questions and more this semester in MUHL 4300/5320. Our case studies will come from every continent (including Antarctica!), focusing primarily on musical nationalism from the late eighteenth century to the present . As we will see, musical nationalism promotes crossover between classical, folk, and popular music; we will consider all of these traditions.

Open to undergrad and grad students across the university. 
Contact Dr. Virginia Whealton at for more details.
