2014 Hip Hop Literacies Conference

The purpose of the Hiphop Literacies conference is to support a network of scholars, students, artists, educators and community members dedicated to using Hiphop as a form of empowerment and education. This year our working conference will feature a series of half-day workshops that provide experiences and information to help educators and youth workers to engage students in academic excellence and social action projects.
The half-day workshops will explore hiphop based pedagogical and activist strategies for approaching topics such as STEM education, religion, gender, sexualities, disability, race, class and diversity. As in the past we seek to illuminate state of the art scholarship addressing issues of identity, social stratification, globalization, popular culture and technology as they bear upon knowledge, empowerment, education, social activism, and to support critical Hiphop artistry and literacies.For more information visit the conference website
