Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

A one-day workshop on the interface between linguistic practices and hip-hop
culture incorporating both US and global perspectives. Some of the questions we
will be addressing include: What are the commonalities and differences between
the various hip-hop scenes that have emerged across the globe in terms of their
linguistic practices? In the end, should one speak of one, or several hip-hop
culture(s)? And how might hip-hop be changing under the burden of its own success?
