What people are saying

american south

Very brief but round introduction for the art forms of the American South.

A good course for anyone who want to know more about the American South, but a little boring~ As part of the southern family living abroad I thoroughly enjoyed this course.

As a non-American and a musician I found this course presented immensely interesting and important background information as to how life was and developed in the American South, culminating in hearing the story of its music which I now understand in its context.

I advise this course to anyone who is interested in ethnology, folklore and popular art and music and is not already familiarized with the American South.

Dr. William Ferris showcases his mastery in capturing the heartbeat of the American South.

Very interesting, great professor The course was very informative.

The content was very interesting.

This course gives a view of a cultural aspect of America that is very interesting and mostly unknown, particularly, I guess, to a non American.
