Sociology of Music in Social Movements|
It has long been noted that social movements typically create movement cultures, but the actual use of music, as one cultural form, is only beginning to receive attention. Is it used for recruiting new members, or maintaining the loyalty of those already committed, for internal critique within the movement itself or to educate those who know nothing of a group's discontent? When, where and why does each of these, and other functions, develop? We will look at a number of theoretical and activist approaches and then apply these to movements in the United States (including the labor, civil rights, New Left, women's, and current inner city movements) and elsewhere.
