about this item

Hip Hop Headphones is a course in Hip Hop Culture. Featuring definitions, lectures, academic essays, and other scholarly discussions and resources,Headphones documents the academic work of a self-professed scholar of the culture. In this project, Hip Hop is defined from multiple disciplinary perspectives, and then situated in a number of scholarly discourses, including pedagogy, literary studies, cultural studies and education. Headphones embraces the elemental forms of Hip Hop Culture--b-boying, dj-ing, rapping, and graffiti art--as a model for 21st-century academic scholarship and teaching. At the same time, it charts and collects the writings, research and insights of one of America's leading Hip Hop Scholars with the expressed purpose of serving as a blueprint for how academics and educators might use Hip Hop culture in the classroom.
