Located at the intersection of sociolinguistics and Hip Hop Studies, this cutting-edge book moves around the world – spanning Africa, Asia, Australia, the Americas and the European Union – to explore Hip Hop cultures, youth identities, the politics of language, and the simultaneous processes of globalization and localization. Focusing closely on language, these scholars of sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, cultural studies, and critical pedagogies offer linguistic insights to the growing scholarship on Hip Hop Culture, while reorienting their respective fields by paying closer attention to processes of globalization and localization. The book engages complex processes such as transnationalism, (im)migration, cultural flow, and diaspora in an effort to expand current theoretical approaches to language choice and agency, speech style and stylization, codeswitching and language mixing, crossing and sociolinguistic variation, and language use and globalization. Moving throughout the Global Hip Hop Nation, through scenes as diverse as Hong Kong’s urban center, Germany’s Mannheim inner-city district of Weststadt, the Brazilian favelas, the streets of Lagos and Dar es Salaam, and the hoods of the San Francisco Bay Area, this global intellectual cipha breaks new ground in the ethnographic study of language and popular culture.

English summary: This dissertation provides the first comprehensive description of German Rap as a form of poetry. It features the widest research overview yet, critically outlining all the main academic trends in dealing with rap. The main part of the book includes two different approaches. First, the Rapschaffen is determined as poiesis and thus as a literary practice. To this end, the common authorship model is explained, which combines the adoration of standardized poetic craftsmanship with an implicit promise of authenticity. Rapschaffen is than descripted as an aesthetic activity with oral and literal shares. Secondly, main characteristics of the genre are pointed out, regarding media, formal and contentual aspects, as well as their interaction. It shows that rap is particularly applicable to stage the speaker as cool and confident. Finally, the social importance of rap in Germany is recapilated on, pleading for a more conscious perception of the literary practice as a cognitively demanding activity. In this sense the approach sets an example for how methods of literary analysis can be used for cultural diagnosis. German description: Rap ist die wohl popularste und einflussreichste Lyrikform der Gegenwart. Gerade unter jungen Mannern ist das Schreiben und Deklamieren von Rap-Texten inzwischen eine der beliebtesten Freizeitbeschaftigungen uberhaupt. Dabei orientieren sie sich in der Konzeption wie auch im Vortragsstil an textsortenspezifischen Regeln und Prinzipien. Fabian Wolbring erschliesst diese nun am Beispiel des deutschsprachigen Rap erstmalig und untersucht sie auf ihre asthetischen Potenziale hin. Es zeigt sich, dass die Gestaltungsprinzipien in Reim- und Rhythmusbindung, Stimmnutzung, Themenwahl und Sprechverhalten wie auch das gangige Autorschaftsmodell besonders dazu geeignet sind, den Sprecher als souveran, autonom und uberlegen zu inszenieren. Die literaturwissenschaftliche Analyse gewinnt dabei kulturdiagnostisches Potenzial.

This book adopts a sociolinguistic perspective to trace the origins and enduring significance of hip-hop as a global tool of resistance to oppression. The contributors, who represent a range of international perspectives, analyse how hip-hop is employed to express dissatisfaction and dissent relating to such issues as immigration, racism, stereotypes and post-colonialism. Utilising a range of methodological approaches, they shed light on diverse hip-hop cultures and practices around the world, highlighting issues of relevance in the different countries from which their research originates. Together, the authors expand on current global understandings of hip-hop, language and culture, and underline its immense power as a form of popular culture through which the disenfranchised and oppressed can gain and maintain a voice. This thought-provoking edited collection is a must-read for scholars and students of linguistics, race studies and political activism, and for anyone with an interest in hip-hop.

In the case of hip-hop, the forces of top-down corporatization and bottom-up globalization are inextricably woven. This volume takes the view that hip-hop should not be viewed with this dichotomous dynamic in mind and that this dynamic does not arise solely outside of the continental US. Close analysis of the facts reveals a much more complex situation in which market pressures, local (musical) traditions, linguistic and semiotic intelligibility, as well as each country's particular historico-political past conspire to yield new hybrid expressive genres. This exciting collection looks at linguistic, cultural and economic aspects of hip-hop in parallel and showcases a global scope. It engages with questions of code-switching, code-mixing, the minority language/regional dialect vs. standard dynamic, the discourse of political resistance, immigrant ideologies, youth and new language varieties and will be essential reading for graduates and researchers in sociolinguistics and discourse analysis.

People in many African communities live within a series of concentric circles when it comes to language. In a small group, a speaker uses an often unwritten and endangered mother tongue that is rarely used in school. A national indigenous language—written, widespread, sometimes used in school—surrounds it. An international language like French or English, a vestige of colonialism, carries prestige, is used in higher education, and promises mobility—and yet it will not be well known by its users. The essays in Languages in Africa explore the layers of African multilingualism as they affect language policy and education. Through case studies ranging across the continent, the contributors consider multilingualism in the classroom as well as in domains ranging from music and film to politics and figurative language. The contributors report on the widespread devaluing and even death of indigenous languages. They also investigate how poor teacher training leads to language-related failures in education. At the same time, they demonstrate that education in a mother tongue can work, linguists can use their expertise to provoke changes in language policies, and linguistic creativity thrives in these multilingual communities.

This book, addressed to experienced and novice language educators, provides an up-to-date overview of sociolinguistics, reflecting changes in the global situation and the continuing evolution of the field and its relevance to language education around the world. Topics covered include nationalism and popular culture, style and identity, creole languages, critical language awareness, gender and ethnicity, multimodal literacies, classroom discourse, and ideologies and power. Whether considering the role of English as an international language or innovative initiatives in Indigenous language revitalization, in every context of the world sociolinguistic perspectives highlight the fluid and flexible use of language in communities and classrooms, and the importance of teacher practices that open up spaces of awareness and acceptance of --and access to--the widest possible communicative repertoire for students.

<I>The Rhizome of Blackness is a critical ethnographic documentation of the process of how continental African youth are becoming Black in North America. They enter a -social imaginary- where they find themselves already falling under the umbrella of Blackness. For young Africans, Hip-Hop culture, language, and identity emerge as significant sites of identification; desire; and cultural, linguistic, and identity investment. No longer is -plain Canadian English- a site of investment, but instead, Black English as a second language (BESL) and -Hip-Hop all da way baby - (as one student put it). The result of this dialectic space between language learning and identity investment is a complex, multilayered, and -rhizomatic third space, - where Canada meets and rubs shoulders with Africa in downtown Toronto, Vancouver, or Montreal in such a way that it produces its own -ticklish subject- and pedagogy of imaginary and integrative anti-racism."

The Cultural Matrix seeks to unravel an American paradox: the socioeconomic crisis and social isolation of disadvantaged black youth, on the one hand, and their extraordinary integration and prominence in popular culture on the other. This interdisciplinary work explains how a complex matrix of cultures influences black youth.
