The aim of this course is to look at the effects of geographical 'place' on human activity and the interactions between that activity and the physical environment.

Human geography will be the main focus, with material from several of the remaining chapters of the course text being investigated.

In this course we will learn about some of the various musics of the world, and about the cultures of which music is a part. Through lectures, recordings, photographs, videos, and live performances, we will learn about music and what it means in human life.
