Students explore Hip Hop Culture’s history, aesthetics, and politics, particularly in relation to gender and sexuality, from an intersectional feminist perspective.
Our class meets on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30am-10:45am in HUM 113.
We have one required book for this course that is available at the bookstore and for loan at the library:
Graffiti Grrlz: Performing Feminism in the Hip Hop Diaspora
