University of New Hampshire Assistant Professor Marcos Del Hierro will provide insight into how hip-hoppers produced sustainable models for recycling knowledge and technology to produce art, criticism, and pleasure, allowing them to respond to social discourses that represent young people of color as inferior and deviant.

This interactive presentation will invite the audience to participate in a “cipher,” or hiphop circle, as a way to experience one example of how knowledge is made in hiphop communities. Young and old audiences are invited to engage with one of the most influential and funky cultural forces of the last forty years.
