The 2014/15 Dance Studies Colloquium continues Tuesday, January 27, 2015 with the first talk of the season, Felicia McCarren's Paris, Burning: French Universalism, Minority Culture and Hip Hop Dance 2001-2015.

About Paris, Burning: French Universalism, Minority Culture and Hip Hop Dance 2001-2015

For two decades, le hip hop has shown another face of France: danced by minorities associated with immigration, it has channeled rage against racism and unequal opportunity and created a movement vocabulary for the expression of the multicultural difference that challenges the universalist discourse of the Republic. Championed by Socialist cultural policy, subsumed into the cultural heritage as concert dance and instituted as a pedagogy, hip hop has staged the burning questions of race and identity within the French Republic of culture.
