"The 2012 Hiphop Literacies conference is designed to explore Hiphop as a site of knowledge formation, identity construction and learning....A major goal of “Hiphop Literacies” is to promote interdisciplinary research and teaching around the value of Hiphop, stimulate ongoing dialogue and outreach across various disciplines in the university and communities....We are seeking proposals that consider aspects of Black diasporic Hiphop and new ways of envisioning the roles of such in local and transnational cultures."
