      Hip Hop Summit – A.D. Carson

      Performance artist and Assistant Professor of Hip-Hop, University of Virginia, A.D. Carson will give a presentation followed by an on-stage conversation with assistant professor of English at Wittenberg University, ShaDawn Battle.

      A.D. Carson is a performance artist and educator from Decatur, Illinois. He received a Ph.D. in Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design at Clemson University doing work that focuses on race, literature, history, and rhetorical performances. A 2016 recipient of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Award for Excellence in Service at Clemson, Carson worked with students, staff, faculty, and community members to raise awareness of historic, entrenched racism at the university through his See the Stripes campaign, which takes its name from his 2014 poem. His dissertation, “Owning My Masters: The Rhetorics of Rhymes& Revolutions,” is a digital archive that features a 34 track rap album and was recognized by the Graduate Student Government as the 2017 Outstanding Dissertation.

      Presented in partnership with Scripps Presents, the Claremont Graduate University Cultural Studies Department and Intercollegiate Department of Africana Studies.
