Graduate Student Work-in-Progress – Rereading the Technomasculine Narrative: Performing Identity Through Video Games in Underground Hip Hop

Date: Thu. April 19th, 2018, 4:30 pm-5:30 pm
Location: Clark Hall Room 206, 11130 Bellflower Road, Cleveland, OH 44106

Video games are ubiquitous in American culture today, and their sounds have worked their way into the popular soundscape over the past half-century. In this lecture, Musicology PhD Candidate Kate Rogers examines how current underground hip hop musicians use game sounds and topics as platforms for exploring identity, questioning stereotypes of race and gender, and advocating for social justice.

Pre-lecture reception begins at 4:15 pm.
