General description

Time: Period III, Thursdays 14–16 (no lecture 2.3.)
Musicology Hovi lecture room, Artium

Lecturer: Inka Rantakallio

Course content:

During the course, we will examine the “socially conscious” or “political” aspects of hip hop music from a critical, interdisciplinary point of view. Lectures are designed thematically, discussing a wide range of issues and discourses related to the course topic, such as religion, “knowledge”, gangsta rap, race, and gender. Students will learn to critically analyze hip hop’s current topics and aesthetics as well as socially and politically pertinent issues with the help of written and audiovisual examples, provided readings, and other lecture material.

Students are expected to actively participate during the lectures. 

The language of instruction is English.

Participation: Lectures, readings, and written assignment.
