Practice/Theory Turntablism Weekend Workshop with DJ LastWord @ Fifth Element

Many times the theoretical education of hip-hop theory is not alternated with practice. I want students to not only learn about hip-hop from readings, lectures, discussion and films but also facilitate their ability to execute one of the primary elements of hip-hop through weekend workshops taught by recognized local hip-hop artists. Students may attend as many of the workshops as they like, however they are required to attend at least one and write an essay about the divide between practice and theory in hip-hop studies to pass the course.
