Anyway, the school has just instituted the nation’s first ever “Hip Hop” minor under the Africana Studies department.
The course will give student the opportunity to study the art form and all of its cultural modes including fashion, music, graffiti, business and film.
“The minor introduces students to the main themes represented in hip hop cultures: appropriation and defense of spaces, mixing of different cultures, migrations, multilingualism, race, class, gender, religions, sexuality, nationality, politics and the economy, and, the search for identity.”
This school is on the move.
“The UA is more open to new, challenging, ambitious, creative and even controversial topics than almost any other university in the world,” explained Alain-Philippe Durand, director of Africana Studies at the university. “It is the opposite: You are constantly pushed and encouraged to break boundaries.”
