Book Description

The Sociolinguistics of Hip-hop as Critical Conscience: Dissatisfaction and Dissent; (PDF) adopts a sociolinguistic perspective to trace the origins and enduring significance of hip-hop as a global tool of resistance to oppression. The contributors; who demonstrate a range of international perspectives; analyze how hip-hop is employed to express dissent and dissatisfaction relating to such issues as immigration; stereotypes; racism; and post-colonialism. Using a range of methodological approaches; they shed light on diverse hip-hop cultures and practices around the world; stressing issues of relevance in the different countries from which their research originates. Together; the authors expand on current global understandings of hip-hop; language and culture; and emphasize its immense power as a form of popular culture through which the disenfranchised and oppressed can attain and maintain a voice. This thought-provoking edited collection is a must-read for scholars and students of linguistics; political activism and race studies and for anyone with an interest in hip-hop.

Reviews

Examining how dissatisfaction and dissent are exemplified in many forms of data; the volume shows how hip hop continues to be a politically and socially relevant form of expression around the world and a tool for contemporary youth to express their dissatisfaction with current political and social regimes.” — Associate Professor Cecelia A. Cutler; City University of New York; USA
By emphasizing the lyrical content of rap produced across the globe; the volume provides intriguing insights on many critical issues of interest to a broad range of readers; including migration; racism; and postcolonialism. Authors use a variety of qualitative and quantitative approaches to show how dissatisfaction and dissent are constructed in rap in ways that cross national borders; languages; and semiotic modes; thus pushing forward the methodological apparatus of Hip Hop studies.” — Dr. Emilee Moore; University of Leeds; UK

It is always a pleasure to read not just poetry; but “strong poetry” where the unknown is made known and apparent; where language sails into oceans of pleasure and solidarity; where disciplines meet to create a nation of hope in a time of hopelessness; and where Hip-Hop rubs shoulders with language; dissent and resistance. The Sociolinguistics of Hip-Hop as Critical Conscience: Dissatisfaction and Dissent could not have been more urgent and more needed than in the current moment. WORD!” — Professor Awad Ibrahim; University of Ottawa; Canada
