sociological phenomena with emphasis on historical, cultural,
economic and political contexts. Discussions will include the co-
existence of various hip hop styles, their appropriation by the
music industry, and controversies resulting from the exploitation of
hip hop music and culture as a commodity for national and global
consumption. Class will meet 2 times on campus for the midterm and
the final exams.  Meets with AAAD-A 290.
