This course examines the emergence, growth, and changing character of Hip Hop culture since its emergence in the early 1970's. Using a wide range of readings, music, films, and other material, students explore the historical context for Hip Hop’s birth and evolution and assess its continuing impact on American society. Through this examination of Hip Hop's evolution—aesthetically, artistically, commercially—students will learn to critically engage narrate about how Hip Hop grew from a small subculture created by Black and Puerto Rican youth in economically and socially marginalized sections of New York City to its current place of cultural prominence, commercial and artistic influence, and broad acceptance in American culture. Students will be evaluated through a series of writing assignments in which they are to use course material to develop interpretations of Hip Hop at various stages of its growth.
