Sociology of Music in Social Movements|
Fall 2018 not offered
|Certificates: Civic Engagement|
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 do 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 U.S. (including the labor, civil rights, New Left, women's, and current inner city movements) and elsewhere.
