Published April 27, 2018

call for papers flyer

The Department invites those interested to submit a paper for the upcoming special issue of Arts on “Hip-Hop, Art, and Visual Culture: Connections, Influences, and Critical Discussions.” 

Dr. Lisa Munson of the Sociology Department and Dr. Jeff Broome of the Department of Art Education have been invited to co-guest edit a special issue of Arts and encourage those interested in contributing to this special issue of Arts, an open access journal.

Some of the topics and questions that can be addressed in the issue, include but are not limited to:

  • How have hip-hop practitioners’ relationships with visual art changed over time?
  • In what ways can hip-hop be used in classrooms as a tool to foster critical discussions related to visual culture, cultural appropriation, postmodernism, and/or aesthetics?
  • What has been the effect of name-dropping artists like Basquiat and Warhol on popular rap songs?
  • How has this contributed to art as a symbol of luxury or a form of investment in contemporary hip-hop?

Please consult the flyer and/or the following link for the call for papers and more information.  

Consider contributing to this special issue of Arts and sharing the news to faculty, practitioners, and doctoral students who may be interested!
