HIP HOP ED WORK
The Handbook of Hip Hop Pedagogy co-edited by Dr. Lauren Kelly and Dr. Daren Graves
The Bloomsbury Handbook of Hip Hop Pedagogy is the first reference work to cover the theory, history, research methodologies, and practice of Hip Hop pedagogy. Including 20 chapters from activist-oriented and community engaged scholars, the handbook provides perspectives and studies from across the world, including Brazil, the Caribbean, Scandinavia, and the USA. Organized into four topical sections focusing on the history and cultural roots of Hip Hop; theories and research methods in Hip Hop pedagogy; and Hip Hop pedagogy in practice, the handbook offers theoretical, analytical, and pedagogical insights emerging across sociology, literacy, school counselling and youth organizing. The chapters reflect the impact of critical Hip Hop pedagogies and Hip Hop-based research for educators and scholars interested in radical, transformative approaches to education. Ultimately, the many voices included in the handbook show that Hip Hop pedagogy is a humanizing and emancipatory approach which is redefining the purposes and practices of education.
CO-CHAIR EMERITUS OF HIP HOP THEORIES, PRAXIS & PEDAGOGIES SIG; AERA
Worked alongside Dr. Lauren Kelly, we co-Chair this Special Interest Group (SIG) and fulfill its mission:
"To foster, promote, and disseminate high-quality research focused on Hip Hop scholarship that addresses intellectual questions on the subject of youth culture and knowledge, using the elements of Hip Hop and its cultural underpinnings to challenge traditional academic theories and pedagogies while also demonstrating the educational foundations of Hip Hop as creative and innovative research."
This is a lecture I gave at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Health Professionals where we analyzed Kendrick Lamar's "Duckworth" as a text through the lens of Critical Race Theory.
