Research Paper – QEP Assignment

Guidelines and Rubric

 

Each student, in consultation with the instructor, will choose a musical repertoire or genre and prepare a Research Paper and Presentation. How does the repertoire you’ve chosen relate to issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, or other definers of identity? Bear in mind that while lyrics and performance are important, you must address musical issues as well. Cite 3-4 scholarly articles using MLA style formatting as your resources for the background paper.

 

Provide a listening example of the genre that can be played by your classmates. Include lyrics, if your music has lyrics, and some guide or explanation of the music itself that guides the listeners through the performance. Videos found online may be used if the video enhances or explains the music in some way. If a video of the performance is used, a listening guide should be provided as well.

           

Submit your Research Paper Topic to the Dropbox no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 2.
