WOM393-02 (Course Reference#310) Gender and Sexuality in Hip Hop Culture
Professor Jessica N. Pabon
Thursdays, 3:30 p.m.-6:20 p.m.

Documentation of hip hop culture's aesthetic, social, and political development, from its late '60s/early '70s Bronx-based quotidian urbanity to its now-global reality, has consistently marginalized girls, women, and queer individuals.  With a femnist lens attentive to these dynamics in hip hop culture, we will explore hip hop's history, aesthics, and politics, paying particular attention to scholarship developed with gender and sexuality at the center of analysis.
