Released summer of 2013,

For a final capstone project, I decided to do a research paper on the role of music in social movements. This ended up becoming a more specific paper on the potential effects of the internet and digital age on the role of music in social movements. This was a super fun project to do and I learned a bunch of great material and talked to some awesome people. This is partly a history lesson and partly an argument for how I perceive this role has or hasn’t changed over the years. I focus on the labor movement, the 1960s counterculture, and Occupy Wall Street. This is kind of limiting for a variety of reasons, but it helps keep everything concise and make as concrete of comparisons as I can based on my research.
