Sachs, Aaron Dickinson; Schönfeldt-Aultman, Scott M. – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2018
The authors utilise the format of a dialogue in this essay to explore the place of hip-hop in the United States College classroom.

Shelby-Caffey, Crystal; Byfield, Lavern; Solbrig, Stephanie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
If an educator is to take a critical stance, teach students to do the same, and design lessons that engage students in thoughtful discussions and actions surrounding issues of social justice, then discussions of politics, race, culture, economics and systems of power are crucial to this work, and the use of hip-hop is a worthwhile endeavour. In…

Social activism and education have been associated with hip-hop since it emerged in New York City 38 years ago.

Leveraging the aesthetic turn in hip-hop scholarship, this article examines how some of the goal-directed and compositional techniques of DJs can be used to redesign and remix African American literature courses.

This article asserts whiteness as an ideology that reaches beyond race/racism to shape and reproduce other interlocking oppressive systems.

Walker, Ayo – Research in Dance Education, 2019
In my investigation of dance curricula in US higher education, the dance discipline's primary pedagogical concentrations in classical ballet and Eurocentric modern dance techniques implicitly signal their centrality to the development of any academically trained dancer. This focus, in turn, generalizes and essentializes other cultural and…
