25 Broadway, 7th floor, New York, NY 10004
Is Hip Hop History? Conference
As the first hip-hop conference hosted by a worker education program, the City College Is Hip-Hop History? Conference aims to provide a forum that features the work of researchers, hip-hop industry practitioners, artists, and working adult students.The conference invites proposals that explore how conflicting standards and values by artists and others, challenge hip-hops viability as one of the U.S.ís most important popular cultural forms. We also invite papers that address hip-hops current and potential function among established academic disciplines (education, psychology, history, communication, the arts and social sciences), as well as the role of gender, class and race in assessing the wide range of meaning invested in its various elements. We expect that these bodies of work will appropriately engage and challenge prior scholarship and most importantly, represent the future direction of hip-hop.
Paper, panel and roundtable proposals should be submitted in the form of 200-500 word abstracts. Interested participants should submit an abstract and bio. Abstracts must be 500 words or less, and they should include the title of the paper, a brief bio and description of your current work and interests, and contact information (name, institutional affiliation, department and e-mail address). All abstracts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word document that includes double-spacing, 12 point Times New Roman font, and a header with your name and page numbers. Conference presentations will be approximately 30 minutes.
