    Dear colleagues,

    In honor of black history month, and in celebration of the 30th anniversary of De La Soul’s groundbreaking album 3 Feet High and Rising, Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music presents the interdisciplinary conference “Hip-Hop in the Golden Age,” to be held on February 16-17, 2019. Our keynote speaker will be Prince Paul (Paul Huston) of De La Soul.

    Full conference details can be found at the link below my signature. Registration will be $25 ($10 for IU students); the registration link should be live within the next 2-3 days.

    For those unable to attend the conference in person, all papers and events will be streamed live at, and we will have a Twitter hashtag for those who wish to ask questions or participate remotely.

    All best,

    Kyle Adams
