David Kirkland in conversation with Richard Andrews

Join David Kirkland and Richard Andrews for a lunchtime talk around youth culture and Hip Hop.

David Kirkland is a transdisciplinary scholar of English and urban education, who explores the intersections among urban youth culture, language and digital media. A key thinker on Hip Hop, he analyses culture, language, and texts, and has expertise in critical literary, ethnographic, and sociolinguistic research methods.

Dr. Kirkland has published widely. His most recent articles include: Black Skin, White Masks: Normalizing Whiteness and the Trouble with the Achievement Gap (TCRecord), English(es) in urban contexts: Politics, Pluralism, and Possibilities (English Education), and We real cool: Examining Black males and literacy (Reading Research Quarterly). He is currently completing his fourth book, A Search Past Silence, to be published through Teacher College Press Language and Literacy Series.

He believes that, in their language and literacies, youth take on new meanings beginning with a voice and verb, where words when spoken or written have the power to transform the world inside-out.

Richard Andrews is Professor of English and Dean of the Faculty of Children and Learning at the Institute of Education. He has published extensively in the fields of language education, argumentation, writing development, multimodality, rhetoric and e-learning.
