CitizenshipToo

A faculty member taking part in CitizenshipToo

A companion program to the Citizenship@Mizzou program, CitizenshipToo is designed as an interactive program for MU faculty and staff. Participants will share with and hear from MU students’ understandings of the meanings and significance of the university's values.

*Talking Drum, a band comprised of MU students, will perform music from a variety of American classics and will invite participants into a dialogue about the enduring messages contained in the lyrics.

The goal of CitizenshipToo is to present to faculty and staff the perspectives of students regarding the critical question of what Citizenship means for the entire Mizzou community. In addition, the discussions will allow for the collection of ideas from faculty and staff on ways to enhance the notion of citizenship on our campus.

*Talking Drum provides an innovative way of thinking, writing, and talking about diversity of American identity and culture through a focus on American popular music. Because of its inclusive rather than exclusive nature, popular music provides a platform for the study of the various subcultures that comprise the complexity of American identity. Talking Drum focuses on the rich and recent history of American popular music, extracts a spectrum of music across genres, rearranges and covers them using new performance aesthetics, composes narratives that frame the music, and creates a unique series of programs that provoke discussion about what this contemporary music tells us about American identity.
