Hip-Hop in the Golden Age, Jacobs School of Music Indiana University, Bloomington

February 16–17, 2019

In honor of black history month, and in celebration of the 30th anniversary of De La Soul’s groundbreaking album 3 Feet High and Rising, Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music presents the interdisciplinary conference “Hip-Hop in the Golden Age.” Our keynote speaker will be Prince Paul (Paul Huston) of De La Soul.

Hip-hop’s golden age (ca. 1988–95) was a time of unprecedented creativity. Having crossed over into mainstream culture but not yet bound by the restrictions of major labels, rappers and producers explored seemingly limitless avenues of beat production, flow, and lyrical topics. This conference will explore any and all aspects of the golden age of hip-hop, including the historical circumstances that gave rise to it, and its impact on later artists: thus, paper presentations need not deal explicitly with hip-hop produced during that time. We envision this as an interdisciplinary conference, and welcome proposals from scholars in a variety of different disciplines, including those outside music.

SXSWEDU Panel Discussion: "Can Hip Hop Shape How We See the LGBT Community?"

“Can Hip Hop Shape How We See the LGBT Community?”

Featuring: James Miles, Big Freedia, Bettina Love, Jarritt Ahmed Sheel, Akiea Gross

This panel presentation features educators, musicians, writers, and researchers as we discuss the impact of guidelines and protections being rolled back by our current administration. How do we protect young people, in schools, when the federal government refuses to do so? If popular artists have a voice that can be used for change, how do they use it? What can we do as adult allies and advocates to change policy? How do we support students, like those from Parkland, to share their voices?

NAFME National Convention 2018

The Innovative Practices of Hip-Hop Music

As the sun rises on the 21st century, American music educators are still scrambling to understand the implications of the musical praxis of the 20th century. Artist like; Drake, Childish Gambino, Jay-Z, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and many more still seem to remain outside of the purview of the educational establishment. Seemingly, music education, as an institution, continues to be behind the times in-terms of valuing home grown folk music, in real time. Hip-Hop is the fastest growing genre of music in 2018, and on top of that is the most listened too music in the world. Hip-hop, is American music, deeply rooted in the experience of the underprivileged and marginalized. In this session we will explore Hip-hop as a method, an idea, and a product. These are the main areas explored in this talk-workshop, and we will discuss, dialogue and debate the innovative practices found in the hip-hop movement and music, as well as engage in activities like; critical listening, collaging - looping, sampling, ostinati, and democratic practice (collaborate). Attendees will walk away with activities and concepts to infuse into their own instructional practices and curricular design. This talk should not, can not and will not adequately replace the research that should accompany detailed investigation into any new or foreign art form. Hip-hop is music, and we will explore it together.

The demo-workshop will feature a discussion of the important musical elements of the hip-hop movement, the sound collage - loops, samples, ostinati and their potential for deeper understanding within the space of the teacher-student relationship. Take-aways: presentations of a variety of ways that using loops, samples, and ostinati will benefit instruction and discussion within the classroom. 

 

Theme: Rethinking Education in Urban Spaces: Engaging Youth through Innovative Pedagogies and Practices

Date: Saturday, May 27th

Location: Cowin Auditorium - Teachers College, Columbia University (525 W120th St, New York, NY 10027)

Hip-Hop education is a new field of study in education, which has peaked the interest of many researchers and educators. Many researchers have shown the effectiveness and benefits of using Hip-Hop culture to engage youth in all academic content areas (Petchauer, 2009). In order to further consider the merging of Hip-Hop culture in traditional educational spaces, we must create a dialogue and be critical of these traditional spaces and pedagogies used in order to discover new and innovative ways to educate and value the culture of our youth in educational spaces. The purpose of this conference is to explore the utilization of Hip-Hop culture as a tool to develop innovative practices and pedagogies that can increase the engagement and achievement of all students, especially those from urban communities. The goal of this conference is to create a space shared amongst educators, school leaders, researchers, community members and students to demonstrate and discuss the use of Hip-Hop culture in educational spaces to better serve/engage all students.

The HipHopEd Conference will be hosted at Teachers College, Columbia University and include professional development workshops around literacy, school counseling and STEM, as well as paper presentations that exemplify the conference’s theme. Finally, the HipHopEd Conference will conclude with the 5th annual Science Genius Final Battles featuring student finalist from Jamaica and Toronto.

I will give a 30 minute presentation on the outcomes of the grounded theory research (K. Charmaz): models, theories, praxis.. etc. from the pilot study which focused on; what is known, what we would like to know and what this new or old knowledge can mean (impact) for the musicking classroom.
