This course brings together students, library curators, and invited musicians and performers to explore the history of Hip Hop music and culture in Cornell University Library's Hip Hop Collection.  Sessions will be held in Kroch Library and will include interaction with artifacts in the Cornell Hip Hop Collection, the largest archive in the world on the subject. Students will learn about Hip Hop's origins, spread, its core artistic elements (rapping, DJing, breakdancing, and graffiti art) and how they have evolved over the past 40 years. Classes will be structured around discussions, examination of archival materials, and will include guest lectures by some of Hip Hop's originators and innovators.
