The development of an undergraduate course that explores concepts of time through music and literature.

This Enduring Questions course would unite literary, philosophical, scientific, and musical works to reflect upon this question: what is time? Though interdisciplinary in scope, the course would be pursued from a musical perspective. Divided into an introduction, three movements (units), and a coda (conclusion), the course would examine works from the late fourteenth century, eighteenth century, and fin-de-si??cle/early twentieth century. Our study will be motivated by these questions: Is time the product of natural laws or human consciousness? How is time measured and experienced? Does technology affect the perception of time, or are there transhistorical modes of perception that resist change? Students would conduct discussions and maintain course blogs, alternating as posters and respondents; guest lecturers would also make posts. Students would present final projects at a Time Fair conducted at multiple venues around campus simultaneously. Grant period: June 2010-Dec 2011.
