Mothering and Hip‑ Hop Culture

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR EDITED VOLUME

Demeter Press is seeking submissions for an edited collection by Maki
Motapanyane and Shana Calixte to be published in 2011.

Motherhood is an experience that has been ever‑ present yet invisible in
the global music genre of Hip‑ Hop. Yet this aspect of women's
experiences within the movement has garnered little or no interest from
journalists, writers and scholars of Hip‑ Hop culture. Nor do we have any
understanding of how mothers who remain Hip‑ Hop enthusiasts negotiate
their relationship to the culture of Hip‑ Hop and its music with their
children. What are the spaces that motherhood occupies in Hip‑ Hop? Are
there ways of understanding mothering in Hip‑ Hop along a historical
continuum? What are some of the ways that motherhood complicates the
very masculinist discourses around hip hop? How can we create an
empowered and feminist Hip‑ Hop mothering, what would it look like and
how would it challenge the status quo? How are mothers engaging with
Hip‑ Hop, both locally and globally?

()The aim of this collection is to give motherhood within Hip‑ Hop
culture an intellectual point of entry into an existing field of
academic debates. Themes that submitted proposals engage may include:

* Hip‑ Hop histories
* Masculinity
* Misogyny and violence
* Consumerism and capitalism
* The globalization and/or transnationality of Hip‑ Hop
* Cultural appropriation
* Political subversion
* Cultural diversity
* Feminist mothering
* Heterosexualities
* Queer identities and sexuality
* Aesthetic continuity and change
* Representation and the marketing of identities
* Other themes not mentioned here

We seek both creative and academic submissions that tackle the complex
ways in which motherhood and Hip‑ Hop frame these and other discussions.
Abstracts are welcome from a variety of academic disciplines and
perspectives.

()SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
()Abstracts: 250 words in length.
Deadline for Abstracts: August 1, 2009
Papers: 15‑ 18 pages
Deadline for Papers: January 7, 2010

Please submit proposals to: Maki Motapanyane at maki@yorku.ca
