A discussion about Hip Hop and Philosophy and issues of
Access in the Arts and Humanities
7th November 2019, 6:00pm – 7.00pm
Lecture Theatre 4 (LT4), Diamond Building
“Sheffield’s very own Poet Laureate and Hip Hop artist, Otis Mensah, presents a lecture on the intimate relationship between Hip Hop and Philosophy; arguing that the art form is an important and rich teaching tool that can help us make sense of ourselves and the world around us. Using his own experiences as an artist and public speaker, Otis explores how race and class inform universities’ lack of engagement with Hip Hop and ultimately creates barriers of access for both the art form itself and the people who closely identify with it. This free public lecture, which will feature a short performance, will be of interest to anyone who is passionate about Hip Hop and Philosophy, or is invested in improving teaching practice and access in the Arts and Humanities.”
