Thinking with Rap: Thinking, Anthropocene, Racism

Emilio G. Berrocal

This event is free, but places must be booked. To book tickets please go to: http://emiliogberrocal.eventbrite.co.uk

In this paper, I will try to offer answers to the following questions: 1) What does it mean to think? 2) Why should we accept the term “anthropocene”? 3) How can we define racism? The particularity of this paper is that each question is a result of and answered by hip-hop practices. Building on original ethnographic material taken from my PhD research on London Rap, the paper aims to think anthropologically with rap.
