Hip Hop and Islam in America (Lecture)

A Hundere Lecture with Su'ad Abdul Khabeer

Monday, October 7, 2013 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

To some the idea of 'Islam and hip hop' is puzzling, to say the least.  This is because we often see Islam as a very conservative faith tradition and hip hop as a music culture that is anything but conservative. However, Islam has been central to hip hop music and culture since its early beginnings. This lecture will explore that history and the ways Islam and hip hop shape each other today.

Su’ad Abdul Khabeer is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology/African American Studies at Purdue University.   
Her research examines how American Muslim youth construct their religious, racial and cultural identities at the intersection of blackness and Islam.  

She is also interested in identity and subjectivity, diaspora and gender studies, performance ethnography, Islamic thought and practice, Arabic and Spanish language and literature.
