2014-15 CLLAS Graduate Research Grant awardee Charlie Hankin, Department of Music and Dance (Music Performance)
UO graduate student Charlie Hankin is working on a preliminary oral history study of the reception and dissemination of hip hop lyrics in Cuba as a means for exploring race and identity on both local and global levels. He conducted a series of interviews in Havana of young writers, artists, and intellectuals before, during, and after the International Hip Hop Festival in early August 2014. In particular, he examined the reception and dissemination of the lyrics of Los Aldeanos, a group given prominent billing at the festival in 2013 and identified in a 2006 New York Times article as part of “Cuba’s Rap Vanguard.”
Hankin is one of two UO graduate students recently announced a recipient of a Fulbright Research Award. See “Two UO graduate students earn prestigious Fulbright awards.”
