10190 Music: The Soundtrack of Your Life  

Explore what music means to people in different times, places, and circumstances using anthropologist Alan Merriam’s classic work on the functions of music. Consider music’s role in the workplace, marketplace, ceremony, and entertainment; its power to influence the way we think, feel, and behave; factors that affect our own musical preference; and the recurring question of whether music is truly a universal language.
