The Wiki project: division of labor

This is the outline that we, as a class, decided to have for our wikipedia text on "Asian American music."
  1. definition paragraph
  2. historical musical practices and representations of Asians in the U.S.
  3. genre-based narrative including:
  • jazz (Richard)
  • rock (Chris)
  • classical (Huong)
  • pop (Kelly)
  • R&B (Mia)
  • rap/hip-hop (Jahmeilia)
  • traditional (Steve)
  • religious (Jalisa)
  • musical theater (Cera)
  • spoken word (Maynard)
  • experimental (Wendy)
The first wiki version is due March 10, Tuesday after spring break.

Let's start researching and google-searching on these topics. We should also look ahead on the syllabus to read any scholarly writing on any of these topics.
