PhD project: "An Arabic Hip Hop Nation?"
The PhD project aims at analyzing the various phenomena and problems arising from a process of "glocalization" in the Arabic rap scene. For that purpose networks of collaboration and intertextuality in rap music in Algeria, Lebanon and the Arab diasporas in France and the USA will be analyzed. This approach will lead to an understanding of Arabic hip hop culture, its interconnections and its relation to US and French hip hop scenes.
