Japanese Hip-Hop and Commercialization

11 May

Here’s a link to today’s listening.

During class I referred to theorist Andres Huyssen’s work (although I couldn’t remember his name) on the feminization of culture. He wrote an essay titled, “Mass Culture as Woman: Modernism’s Other” from his book After the Great Divide: Modernism, Mass Culture, Postmodernism (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1986). I also referred to Nina Eidsheim’s research on race, technology, and vocality. Let me know if any of these issues interest you.

We decided as a class to have the review session next Thursday at 3PM. The final exam will be May 22nd at 3:30PM. Remember, the essay questions will help you as you study.
