Andrew DuBois is Associate Professor of English at the University of Toronto. The Anthology of Rap (Yale UP, 2010), co-edited with Adam Bradley of the University of Colorado, collects roughly three hundred lyrics from thirty years of recorded rap, accompanied by historical essays that contextualize the poetic innovations that both characterize and help to define hip-hop as a domestic culture and global force. This roundtable will draw on Toronto-based participants to situate the Anthology of Rap in a variety of scholarly and musical contexts.

All events are free and open to the public.
