International Hip Hop Studies Conference 2016

I am delighted to announce that I will be delivering a paper at the upcoming Hip Hop studies conference at the University of Cambridge in June 2016.

It's a bit intimidating (as is everything related to my academic life) given the calibre of presenters, but I also can't wait.

My paper is titled

It is where you’re from: ­Re-negotiating the role of place in Hip Hop through documentary.

I will be mainly focusing on the Nas film Time Is Illmatic but also looking back to the likes of Style Wars.

Here's the conference information:
