ANSO 333: Sociology of Hip-Hop
Degree Requirements: Africana Studies Elective, Gender and Sexuality Studies Elective
This course uses an interdisciplinary and intersectional lens to examine the social, economic, and cultural significance of hip-hop domestically and globally in the post-civil rights era. Drawing on work in hip-hop studies and the fields of sociology, cultural studies, and gender studies, this course roots the genealogy of hip-hop in other musical forms and analyzes hip-hop as a modern and comprehensive expressive form that provides critical reflection on social phenomena.
Not open to first-year students.
