Hiphop University: Working Bibliography

[Visit page to watch the video]

The primary aim of this Bibliography is to present references for Hiphop scholarship. We focus on work that includes pivotal theories as well as research methods and methodology. We seldom list a publication of someone’s opinions. The only exception is when an opinion publication is part of a larger initiative of the Hiphop Archive and Research Institute.

In addition to books, we list peer-reviewed articles, films, dissertations, theses, journals and salient magazine issues. Send recommendations to build our collection to the Associate Director of the Hiphop University Project.

Hard copies must be posted.

This particular site has been a research resource for students, educators and journalists for the past 7 years. Send us a message if you found it helpful, and remember to cite the Hiphop Archive and Research Institute, if you found something here that informed your paper or presentation.

We wish you a joyful and enriching research experience!
