This course will examine the roots and routes of hip hop music and culture--what are its origins, where has it traveled and what is its future. Taking on hip hop as a way of understanding of US society and culture, this course looks at hip hop's relationship to a number of concepts including: race and Blackness, gender and sexuality, class and religion, as well as questions of politics, everyday resistance and war. Primary course materials will include hip hop cultural products (lyrics, music, video, art, fashion) alongside academic writings on hip hop music and culture. The course encourages students to take a hands-on approach to learning about hip hop and as part of the course assignments students will experiment with creating their own piece of hip hop culture (no previous hip hop experience necessary)."
