After reading MARTA Robertson's article Ballad for Incarcerated Americans: Second Generation Japanese American

Musicking in World War II Camps, This is a bit longer article than usual, so make sure you give yourself enough time to go through it.

1) How was musicking (making,listening, reacting, etc.) used in camp and which meanings did it held music for incarcerated Americans, young and old across cultures and music styles?

2) What are some of the soundscapes described in the paper? How is that important to the narrative? What role did it play for survivors' experiences?

3) How does the author explain the contradictory relationship of Ballad for Americans as resistance to incarceration? After all it was the American government—their own government—who incarcerated them for supposedly patriotic reasons. What effect did its performance had on the camp members, both the incarcerated and the administrators?
