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.

Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and translation.
