Sociology professor Grace Kao teaches about race and place

September 9, 2022

This semester marks her third time teaching her interdepartmental course, “Race and Place in British New Wave, K-Pop and Beyond.” The course is a first-year seminar that explores popular musical genres and their connections to racial, regional and national identities, as well as immigration trends and political systems. Kao said she approaches music both “seriously” and “lightheartedly” in the seminar.
