Abstract:

Located at the intersection of sociolinguistics and Hip Hop Studies, this
cutting-edge book moves around the world-- spanning Africa, Asia,
Australia, the Americas and the European Union-- to explore Hip Hop
Cultures, youth identities, the politics of language, and the simultaneous
processes of globalization and localization. Focusing closely on language,
these scholars of sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, (Hip Hop)
cultural studies, and critical pedagogies offer linguistic insights to the
growing scholarship on Hip Hop Culture, while reorienting their respective
fields by paying closer attention to processes of globalization and
localization. The book engages complex processes such as transnationalism,
(im)migration, cultural flow, and diaspora in an effort to expand current
theoretical approaches to language choice and agency, speech style and
stylization, codeswitching and language mixing, crossing and
sociolinguistic variation, and language use and globalization.

Moving throughout the Global Hip Hop Nation, through scenes as diverse as
Hong Kong's urban center, Germany's Mannheim inner-city district of
Weststadt, the Brazilian favelas, the streets of Lagos and Dar es Salaam,
and the hoods of the San Francisco Bay Area, this global intellectual cipha
breaks new ground in the ethnographic study of language and popular culture.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
