The Politics of Popular Music
Dr John Williamson, University of Glasgow

Description

This playlist provides a range of contextual documentaries and films for a Popular Music Politics course I teach at the University of Glasgow. It draws on a number of recurring themes (gender and sexuality, race, censorship, democracy and totalitarianism) and shows them at work and intersecting in different countries and across different genres and sub-genres.
