This course explores complex intersections of music and spirituality from the turn of the twentieth century through the 1970s. Topics of study include turn-of-the-century spiritualism, Jewish identity in Vienna, Judaism & Catholicism in France, Eastern spirituality in the West, and the invocation of spiritual themes in response to wars. Students will engage with artistic expressions ranging from the devout to the skeptical in lectures, readings, guided listenings, and discussions. In addition to a midterm and final exam, students will design their own research project under the guidance of the instructor to further explore a topic of their choosing. The project culminates in a research paper, which students submit in lieu of a final exam.
