Rap (in) the Academy: Academic Work, Cultural Studies and Education
Contribution to Book
Imagining the Academy: Higher Education and Popular Culture
The essays in this book examine various forms of popular culture and the ways in which they represent, shape, and are constrained by notions about and issues within higher education. From an exploration of rap music to an analysis of how the academy presents and markets itself on the World Wide Web, the essays focus attention on higher education issues that are bound up in the workings and effects of popular culture.
