Pre-Spring Break Clarification

20 Mar

Since there was some confusion about what exactly we will cover when this week and the short writing assignment due this weekend, I thought I’d clarify.

Today we are discussing Shanna Lorentz’s “Zhen Brasil’s Japanese Groove” after a brief listening quiz on Mexico City.

Tomorrow (Wednesday, 8AM in HCL 8) we will discuss hip-hop in São Paulo.

Friday we will discuss Drum ‘n’ Bass in São Paulo.

For the listening response due by this weekend, take a track from the first Module and discuss its socio-cultural relationship to a city in the Americas. I recommend that you pick something that you enjoy or find engaging and discuss it using some of the vocabulary on the Vocab sheet. Your paper must have a thesis. Papers should be 3-5 pages.

    Wasn’t the chapter by Derek Purdue for today and Lorentz’s for Wednesday? The post from March 11th says it was, or did we change up the order at some point?

      There has been so much confusion about this. I thought we were doing Lorentz for Wednesday, too. I might do a little of both.
