This semester I opted to complete a pedagogical project for my Music 7007: Race Gender and Class course in lieu of writing a traditional term paper. This project required me to prepare a graduate-level lecture and teach it to a group of classical musicians. I’ll teach that class on Tuesday, and it will be my first time teaching Master’s-level students, which is exciting for me. My topic will be the Norwegian metal scene in the 199os, how it shaped European metal thereafter, and the ways Northern European symbols like Thor’s Hammer and the Elder Futhark have been used in metal music.
I won’t be able to upload the materials for that class to Academia.edu, since the platform doesn’t really support the sharing of pedagogical materials. So I’m uploading them here. Please feel free to download them, modify them, and use them in your own teaching.
