Assuming Gender

This special issue of Assuming Gender – an online, peer-reviewed academic journal from Cardiff University – seeks to explore the way gender is both presented and consumed through popular media and advertising. As Ann Herrmann points out in the article 'Shopping for Identities', commodities 'are characterised by their dual nature: material composition and symbolic meaning' (Herrmann 2002: 539). Consumer culture plays a significant role in constructing valid (and normative) identity categories with which consumers are encouraged to identify.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 - 3:24pm
Albany State University Department of English, Modern Languages, and Mass Communication

In the 1970s, DJ Kool Herc, a Jamaican born man living in the Bronx, helped spark the birth of a new genre/culture: Hip Hop. Popularized by Black and Brown marginalized populations in the United States, Hip Hop is a genre and culture now known around the world. From its early inception until now, Hip Hop has evolved into a culture and art form with its own Diaspora. During this, our fourth annual conference, we will explore how Hip Hop has reached a global audience and undergirded a whole new worldview for the last thirty years. This year, we will come to know Hip Hop in Diaspora.
