About the Course:

The Radiohead DeCal class brings life-long diehard fans of the band together with those who discovered Radiohead recently, all for the purpose of discussing the band's music, lyrics, videos, and live performances over their almost 20-year long history, as well as study the impact the band has made in music, politics, literature, and pop culture in general. So, pretty much everything you can think of!

You will be required to complete 5 short written homework assignments, 1 final paper, and regularly attend class. Though participating in discussions is not a harshly-graded part of your final grade, it is the foundation of the class and is required for the class to function. We love talking, but want you to join in on the discussion too!

The first class will meet on August 31st, the first Monday of the semester, in 123 Wheeler at 7PM ~ you must attend the first class in order to receive the course control numbers! Your absence will result in you being dropped from enrollment.

Knowledge of the band's earlier music (i.e. Pablo Honey, The Bends, and so forth) is certainly beneficial, but any new fans with open minds and eager hearts to learn are welcomed and appreciated!

How to Enroll:

Email Joanna, the head facilitator, at with the following information:

-Top 3 Favorite Radiohead songs (we know this is difficult!)
-Are you taking this class lower division (freshman, sophomores) or upper division (juniors, seniors, transfers)?

In response, you will receive a confirmation email (may take a couple of days, as I am doing this by hand!). The CCN's to be entered on TeleBears to enroll in the class will be given at the first class meeting.
