POLS 208 Democracy Music Videos 2019

I play music videos before my lectures. They are drawn from a fairly broad range of alternative musical genres. Most are contemporary but some are classics from the decades from the 1960s to the present. I will also been screening music videos suggested by students doing the paper. I will update this blog weekly during the course of Semester Two, 2019- the following is currently the playlist from 2017.
