RESEARCH PRESENTATION

University of Tampa (FL)

Mining memory, Durham recalls her southern roots to narrate her hip hop becoming. Durham’s performance-informed autoethnography and embodied cultural criticism in Home with Hip Hop Feminism demonstrate how critically-engaged, community-centered, and culturally relevant research can serve as a catalyst for new areas of inquiry and social movements.
