Summer: Hip-Hop and Poetry

Hip-Hop has become a pervasive medium, crossing borders and integrating itself into mainstream life. There are traces of hip-hop in movies, clothing, other genres of music, even in the presidential election. One could argue that its influence is so great, that it has taken over all aspects of our lifestyles. No matter how far and wide it grows as a culture, the basics will always be a beat and the lyrics to match that beat. This study of hip-hop will focus specifically on the origins of oral poetics and performance. Students will spend half of the week in the classroom writing original poems that are centered on many of the popular themes of hip-hop music. The remainder of the week will be spent on the stage, exploring movement, and djing.
