  A Conversation on the Future of Hip Hop in the Academy, with A.D. Carson  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

Hip hop is a musical genre and culture that emerged in the mid-1970s in New York City and rapidly expanded into a global phenomenon, developing both as an increasingly interdisciplinary art form, and as a cultural practice and discourse that intersects with sociology, political science, English, urban affairs, anthropology, history, marketing, Africana studies, visual arts, dance, technology, and much more. The extraordinary range of interdisciplinarity in Hip Hop has attracted attention in academia since the late 1980s, and this engagement continues to grow.

Through conversation with A.D. Carson, Virginia Tech faculty members, and Virginia Tech students, we will explore possible futures for Hip Hop in the academy, based on Carson's experiences as a professor of Hip Hop in the music department at the University of Virginia, and on the experiences of the VTDITC Hip Hop Studies community.

This event is presented with the support of VTDITC.
