Critical Approaches to Hip-Hop and Religion Group and Music and Religion Group

Call for Papers: 

We encourage paper submissions on the theme of "Rap Music and Religion in the American "South." Atlanta, part of the "Dirty South" has been called hip hop's center of gravity. We welcome submissions that engage regional and geographic impact and influence on the cultural production of rap music (with attention to religion) and its cross-cultural pollinations among musical modalities such as folk music, country music on rap music or vice-versa. Examples might include the country stylings of groups such as Nappy Roots and Arrested Development or the more recent trend and growth in popularity of white rap music celebrating Southern culture in particular.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
