Believe it or not, summer is a busy time for UC Berkeley History. This summer we’ll be offering numerous courses ranging from the Roman Empire to the modern Latin American environment.
One of our most exciting offerings N100: Special Topics in History: "Hip Hop and History," will be taught by Assistant Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers. The course will not trace the history of hip hop, but instead illuminate the ways that history, and African-American history in particular, inform the themes and subject matter upon which the selected lyrics focus. No books are required for this course.
