Geographical Study of American Blues Culture
Strait, John B.
Journal of Geography, v109 n1 p30-39 2010
Music is not often utilized in teaching geography, despite the fact that many scholars orient their research around analyzing both the historical and spatial dimensions of musical expression. This article reports on the use of a teaching module that utilizes blues culture as a lens to understand the geographical history of the United States. The relevance of this geographical history to the U.S. South is emphasized. The content of this module incorporates several themes and concepts critical to developing and facilitating a geographical perspective. Educators are encouraged to use this module as a model to develop creative ways in which the geography of music can be effectively incorporated within any educational curriculum.
