As we watch the various videos of musicians and music from various ethnographic areas, imagine that you're doing fieldwork in that location, and keep notes on some of the more subtle issues that come up, or that occur to you while you're watching these documentaries. Then write down three questions about each video that you think are interesting or perplexing.

At the end of the semester, I will ask to see your video journals. They do not need to be polished—I just want to see how you responded/thought about the videos (as opposed to just passively watching them).
