Description:

This cutting-edge book, located at the intersection of sociolinguistics and Hip Hop Studies, brings together for the first time an international group of researchers who study Hip Hop textually, ethnographically, socially, aesthetically, and linguistically. It is the harvest of dialogue between these two separate yet interconnected areas of study. The borderline between Hip Hop culture and language pedagogy is fruitful but rarely explored. By looking at Hip Hop sociolinguistically and applying diverse applied linguistics frameworks, the authors explore the relations between language, popular culture, identity , and pedagogy, and offer a complex reading of the politics of language education through detailed ethnographic, critical discourse analysis, and sociolinguistic studies of Hip Hop culture in locally and globally diverse contexts. Overall, this book looks at the ways in which multilingual identities are performed within Hip Hop culture. A missing gap in the Hip Hop literature is the centrality and anin-depth analysis of the very medium that is used to express and perform Hip Hop -- language. Global Linguistic Flows fills this gap.
