Abstract:     
This paper explores the pedagogical value of adding remix and mash-up to an introductory political theory course as a means of promoting greater student engagement with the material. The paper begins by reviewing the underlying rationale for this move, the viability of using remix and mash-up in a political theory course, and how they were integrated into the specific course I was teaching. The middle sections illustrate the viability of remix and mash-up as pedagogical resources. I provide case studies for each, drawing on classic works in political theory. The final section discusses examples of student work, student feedback on the projects, and faculty perceptions of the effort.
