Marcos Del Hierro

The Use of Hip-Hop Rhetoric to Combat the Criminalization of People of Color

University of New Hampshire Assistant Professor Marcos Del Hierro provides insight into how hip-hoppers produced sustainable models for recycling knowledge and technology to produce art, criticism, and pleasure, allowing them to respond to social discourses that represent young people of color as inferior and deviant.

Del Hierro is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of New Hampshire. He received his Ph.D. from Texas A&M University in 2014. His research focuses on intersections among Rhetoric and Composition, Race and Ethnic Studies, and Hip-hop Studies. He is currently working on his first monograph, Homegrown Critique Through Hip-hop Rhetorics.

From March 5, 2019.
