Abstract: Research on music and social movements has focused on music’s role in framing movement issues and encouraging movement participation. Extant work examines music as the “soundtrack to a movement,” but neglects the importance of arts culture as movement in and of itself. Drawing on movements theory, this investigation uses in-depth interviews with 40 key informants to assess current participation in hip-hop culture as part of a valid social movement focusing on a reconception of identity and challenge to dominant ideologies. The importance of race and class in the movement is considered along with the strength of the movement over time. Hip-hop participants over time have served to redefine the identity of poor and minority groups by challenging the dominant conceptions of these groups. The paper concludes that current hip-hop culture possesses important movement traits such as intentionality, contestation, and collective identity all framed by the attributed meaning to early hip-hop. Specifically, members of the hip-hop “community” over the last 15 years frame their identity as one of contesting current political identity splits in black, impoverished, communities, by carrying on the original intent of hip-hop founders. This research concludes that the current hip-hop movement is based on a selective social memory of early hip-hops intention. Early hip-hop participants identify less intentionality, contestation, and collective identity than later participants. The implications of these findings for a discussion of musical protest and social movements in general are also considered.

Abstract: Political participation has been analyzed by its most common form of expression, the vote, for long time. However, voting is one among many resources available to influence political world. Political participation refers to those intentional actions, legal or not, developed by individuals and groups in order to support or question any of the various elements that conform politics field: decision-making, authorities and structures (Sabucedo, 1996).
In this frame, two studies were conducted with the general objective of analyze the structure and determinants of political participation, based on college students convenience samples.
In order to explore how political actions group together, a confirmatory factor analysis was carried out (Study 1, n = 496). Two opposite forms appear: proselytization (convincing others, attending political meetings, relating to politicians and campaigning) vs. mobilization or direct participation. The latter is clearly differentiated in pacific participation (attending demonstrations, participating in strikes and occupying buildings) and aggressive participation (damaging things and using personal violence).
With the aim of analyze determinants of participation types, three regressions have been done (Study 2, n = 419). Results show that proselytization is explained by main activities done by participants, political interest, values and efficacy. Pacific participation is explained by action agreement, political interest and values. Finally, aggressive participation is explained by action agreement, gender, civic engagement, conformism and action efficacy.

Abstract: In recent years there has been a push to increase undergraduate exposure to research. However, this new emphasis highlights a potential disparity for students who study at research versus non-research focused institutions. Given the institutional divide between research and non-research institutions (Stein 1977; Twombly & Townsend 2008; Weeber 2006), instructors at teaching schools and community colleges are not often able to expose their students to first-hand research experiences through the traditional means of research assistantships or introductions to faculty research. In this paper, using the Research Experience Program as a case study, we introduce a new pedagogical tool which allows instructors teaching sociology courses in institutions that traditionally do not have deeply developed research programs to expose their students to the research process first-hand. Our case study highlights the possibility that participant pool participation can successfully be incorporated into curriculum even in large lecture and online classes with a minimum of burden to course instructors. It also highlights the possibility of engaging in win-win inter-institutional collaborations between research and teaching institutions to create experiences that can benefit students who might have been formerly barred from these experiences by institutionalized academic barriers. Using 6 years of student feedback data on the Research Experience Program, we evaluate the success of this alternative method of exposing community college students to social science research first-hand.
