More Than a Paycheck: What Occupational Music Reveals About Worker Health
(Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)
Ysaye Barnwell (of Sweet Honey in the Rock), speaker
The lyrics of 138 songs written by coal miners and textile workers were examined and they revealed invaluable information about working conditions, accidents, and the onset and symptoms of disease. Barnwell will discuss the ten categories of health related information which were identified within the lyrics of the songs. In addition, Barnwell will discuss ways in which songs of this nature can be used in public health education.
