  1. GenresIs Shania Twain Really “Country”? Assign 9 Student Groups of 5 3 groups were asked to compile all their musical genres (no limit) 3 groups were asked to compile all their music into no more than 15 genres 3 groups were asked to compile all their music into no more than 6 genres

  2. Genres, Groups 1-4 Green= Unique

  3. Genres, Groups 6-9 Green= Unique

  4. Genres, Group 5 Green= Unique

  5. 57 Genres, 34 Unique

  6. Genres – Variables and Alternatives How suitable/workable were your genres for the list of artists provided? What difficulties/challenges did you encounter in trying to place these artists in your genres? Would it have been easier to have more genres? Different genres? Fewer genres? Would it have been easier if you had been given the list of artists first, and then created the genres? How does this relate to how you organize your ‘knowledge’ other than music genres?

  7. Genres – Variables and Alternatives • Alternatives (among many): • Assign by song instead of artist • Assign by album instead of artist • Assign by individual track/song • Determine chronologically • Determine alphabetically • Determine by gender • Determine by size of group • What is Ur purpose? • How do U intend to use it? • What do U want to achieve?

  8. Clips from Herbie Hancock “Possibilities” • Herbie’s attitudes and philosophies • Herbie with Annie Lennox and Paula Cole • Herbie with Jonny Lang and Joss Stone • Herbie with John Mayer

  9. Genres as “knowledge” • “Genre” as a type, category, collection, grouping, etc. • Even a label can be considered a genre; or vice-versa • How do U ‘group’ what U ‘know’, and then how do U label what U ‘know’? • Where does Ur Knowledge come from?

  10. Ur Knowledge: what’s the source?

  11. ‘Knowledge’ – Compared to Music

  12. Examples of “genres” (categories) • “Plagiarism” • Previous student • John Merrill • Barack Obama • U? • (from the syllabus) • B. Plagiarism. The appropriation, theft, purchase, or obtaining by any means another's work, and the unacknowledged submission or incorporation of that work as one's own offered for credit. Appropriation includes the quoting or paraphrasing of another's work without giving credit therefore.

  13. Examples of “genres” (categories) • “Weapons of Mass Destruction” • Nuclear • Biological (germ, bacteria, toxins, anthrax, risin, etc.) • Chemical (mustard, sarin, CS [tear gas], pepper, etc.) • Is it appropriate to group these “weapons” together? • Is it appropriate to react to the label “WMD” without differentiating “nuclear” from “biological” or “chemical”?

  14. Genres, categories (cont.) • Can serve to impede creativity • To think “out of the box” … beyond the conventional genres, categories • Korzybski encouraged humans to avoid copying animalistic behaviors: • Dogmatic attitudes • Hardening of the Categories • Thinking in rigid categories (genres) is often reflected in “to be” verbs: • McCain is/is not a true conservative. • I am an evangelical Christian. • She was a total bitch to me. • Our school must be“Exemplary” or property values will go down.
