On Friday, October 20, Dr. Bruce Campbell, associate professor of Education at Arcadia, will join Dr. Todd Craig, Cathey White and Mike Nyce for a live recording of the “In Record Time” Podcast moderated by Jack Boogi.  We will be discussing Dr. Craig’s new book, K For The Way: DJ Rhetoric and Literacy for 21st Century Writing Studies. 

K for the Way explores writing, rhetoric, and literacy from the perspective of the Hip Hop DJ.  Craig and Campbell, both DJs and academic scholars, will establish and investigate the function of DJ rhetoric and literacy, illuminating the DJ as a fruitful example for (re)envisioning approaches to writing, research, and analysis in contemporary educational settings. Because it is widely recognized that the DJ was the catalyst for the creation of Hip Hop culture, this book begins a new conversation in which Hip Hop DJs introduce ideas about poetics and language formation through the modes, practices, and techniques they engage in on a daily basis.

Using material from a larger qualitative research study that illustrates the Hip Hop DJ as a twenty-first-century new media reader, writer, and literary critic, Craig blends interviews from prominent and influential DJs in the Hip Hop community with narrative and interdisciplinary scholarship from writing studies, Hip Hop studies, African American studies, urban education, and ethnomusicology. The voices of DJs sit front and center, presenting a revolutionary conversation about writing and communication in the twenty-first century. This live recording session will explore all of this and much more!
The live recording is open to the public and will be at RadioKismet (130 S 34th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104). Doors open at 3:30 and the recording starts promptly at 4:30PM. There will be a reception and book signing following the recording.
