Must be a junior in standing to enroll.

This seminar course will ask questions about the role of hip hop
culture in contemporary American society and under the conditions of
globalization. We will also explore recent debates about
mainstreaming an African American musical art form, the role and
responsibility of the artist, as well as the concept of tradition,
creativity and the emerging scholarship on hip hop.
