Global Hip Hop of the Non-Anglophone World (CLAC .50)
MUSC 285
Fall 2022
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CGST 285

This optional lab class is intended for students who are currently taking MUSC295: Global Hip Hop. Proficiency in a language other than English is required. Each student will present to the class a single piece of their choice in a non-English language every other week (for a total of five presentations). Presenters will provide the class with written lyrics in both the original language and in English translation. In lieu of analyzing recordings by others, students have the option to compose their own non-English rap songs and record (or perform) them for in-class discussion. The final paper will tie the five presentations together in a single formal document (or website). Class discussion will be in English, but the topics will all be rap lyrics and hip hop/youth culture in the non-Anglophone world.
