Global Asian Performance Digital Archive

Global Hip Hop and Asian Diasporas

PI: J. Lorenzo Perillo

This archive is a collective project by students and scholars of GLAS 223 “Global Hip Hop and Asian Diasporas” at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Ranging from oral tradition in artist interviews, recorded dance, movement, music, and other genre, the materials emphasize the vital role of performance for Asians and Asian Americans as a medium for social justice, protest and social commentary, knowledge production and transmission, worldmaking, self-actualization, and community-building.
