Proposals for both Panels and Individual Papers are now being accepted for the Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture Area. We had excellent representation in this Area for 2009, and we are looking to expand in both quantity and complexity for 2010. This year, we are particularly interested in proposals that address the following:
- Intersections of Hip Hop and Pedagogy
As always, papers and panels that consider the myriad ways that Rap Music and Hip Hop culture impact and feed upon Popular and American culture are encouraged. This Area should be construed broadly, and we seek papers that aren’t afraid to take risks. Proposals from Graduate Students are particularly welcome, with award opportunities for the best graduate papers.
Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words with relevant audio/visual requests by December 15, 2009, to Robert Tinajero at the email below. Panel proposals should include one abstract of 200 words describing the panel, accompanied by the underlying abstracts of 250 words of the individual papers that comprise the panel.
