about

Soul music and country music propel American popular culture. Using ethnomusicological tools, Shonekan examines their socio-cultural influences and consequences: the perception of and resistance to hegemonic structures from within their respective constituencies, the definition of national identity, and the understanding of the 'American Dream.'
Stephanie Shonekan is Asisstant Professor of Ethnomusicology and Black Studies at the University of Missouri, USA.
