MCST3300 Hip-Hop Culture

Hip-Hop culture, over the course of its recognized existence, has given rise to much controversy, admiration and study. Now recognized as a global phenomenon that appeals to youth cultures, the Hip-Hop movement can be identified in nearly every aspect of human existence. Hip-Hop is also the subject of transnational dialogues about race, gender, sexual orientation, class, tradition and change. In the spirit of such dialogues, this course facilitates discussion and research about the creation, circulation and consumption of Hip-Hop culture. Course readings cover Hip-Hop's history from the African diaspora to contemporary influences around the world.
