In this installment of the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute Colloquium Series, Lauren Leigh Kelly, Associate Professor at Rutgers University's Graduate School of Education, will present on her project Transforming Schools and Communities through Critical Hip Hop Literacies: An Exploration of Youth Agency and Critical Consciousness in Hip Hop Education, which examines how youth activate Hip Hop culture and their collective imaginations as a mechanism for social transformation. Drawing upon data collected from over 10 years of case study and social design-based research with youth inside and outside of K-12 classrooms, Kelly’s work explores the role of Hip Hop in developing antiracist teaching pedagogies and in fostering the agentive and speculative capacities of Hip Hop-identified youth. 

Hutchins Center events and exhibitions are accessible, free, and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.
