Christopher Dennis, an associate professor of Spanish language and Latin American literatures and cultures at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, explores how hip-hop artists use music and digital media to rework ethnic identities. He will introduce the audience to some of the most renowned Afro-Colombian hip-hop artists, their musical innovations, and production and distribution practices.
In addition to research on popular music, including his new book Afro-Colombian Hip-Hop: Globalization, Transcultural Music and Ethnic Identities, Dennis has published articles on Afro-Colombian literature, racial iconography and Cartagena’s tourist industry, and the representation of black subjects in Colombian colonial literature.
Admission is free. A reception will be held at 4:30 p.m.
