Hip-Hop Pedagogy

Hip-Hop Pedagogy
Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Join us at the Graduate Center on February 14 at 12pm in room 9207 for a workshop on hip-hop and pedagogy moderated by Futures Initiative Fellow Kashema Hutchinson. 

This workshop will be conducted as a cypher, a hip hop cultural event, such as freestyling or battling that takes place in a circle, to discuss the relationship between the elements of hip-hop culture and pedagogy in traditional and non-traditional educative spaces. Narratives and infographics will be used to examine the different types of hip-hop pedagogy. Topics such as identity, school to confinement pathways and mass incarceration will also be addressed. Participants will include students from the Undergraduate Leaders Fellowship.

Immediately following the Hip-Hop Pedagogy Panel, Dr. Asilia Franklin-Phipps, a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Graduate Center's Teaching and Learning Center, will facilitate a workshop where attendees can reflect upon the panel and develop and share classroom practices that resonate with the themes of the presentation.

We invite you to join us:

This discussion, co-sponsored by the GC PublicsLab, is part of the The University Worth Fighting For, a series of workshops that tie student-centered, engaged pedagogical practices to institutional change, race, equality, gender, and social justice.
