The course addresses research issues and methodologies through the lens of Cornell’s Hip-Hop Collection, a gift of collector and author Johan Kugelberg, which is housed in Cornell Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections. The collection features a significant archive on the history of hip-hop and rap music, documenting its emergence in the Bronx in the 1970s and early 1980s. It includes sound recordings, a key photographic archive, textile art, books, magazines, and more than five hundred original flyers. The course provides students opportunities to gain new insights into hip-hop culture, while also introducing them to research and curatorial methodologies and goals.
