Critical Birding: Music, Observation, and the Environment
Critical Birding: Music, Observation, and the Environment has two aims: building critical listening skills through direct observation of birds and introducing students to a history of Western music through the lens of nature and the environment (birdsong has inspired composers for centuries). This course brings listening practices and music history into conversation with the Environmental Humanities. This course fulfills the Elective requirement of the Music major.
This course fulfills the EH Minor Requirement in Arts & Humanities Approaches to Environmental Inquiry. See the full minor requirements list.
