"Brown and Not so Brown: Racializing Hip-Hop and Singer-Songwriter Rock-Pop in the South Asian Atlantic" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 64th Annual Conference, Seattle Sheraton Hotel, Seattle, Washington, <Not Available>. 2019-11-20 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: This paper argues for a comparative and transnational approach to the racialization of American and British musicians of South Asian descent that takes account of distinctive genre formations. It analyses music media discourse and the ways in which musicians themselves draw attention to or away from their ethnic difference, which may be sharply visible and audible, invisible or silenced, depending on the racialized expectations of music styles and genre cultures. The paper compares two examples – the American hip-hop trio Das Racist and the British singer-songwriter Bat for Lashes. Das Racist plays with ideas of racial and ethnic authenticity in the dominant black-and-white discourse of US hip-hop and nationalism. Bat for Lashes’ Pakistani-British background is muted in the whitened world of singer-songwriter pop and UK indie. The paper outlines the possibilities and limits for musicians freed from and tied to cultural difference in a time of ‘post-racial’ racisms and (multi)culture wars.

Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: The purpose of this research is to situate the community members who brought awareness to the aftermath of the Mike Brown shooting via social media as social activists. These individuals
were thrust into the public spotlight and gained national and international attention via social media. The use of Internet Communication Technologies has changed the landscape of social
activism. Even more specific, the emergence of social networking and blogging among youth has given rise to the potential for social activism through social media. Social media is an innovative venue for social activism. Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Tumblr allow online users to share and broadcast information about interests and opinions to known contacts or the general public (Naaman, Becker, & Gravano, 2011; Java, Finin, Song, & Tseng, 2007). These networks are examples of how the successful use of the Internet might change the landscape of mobilization give the ability to reach millions in a matter of minutes (Kahn & Kellner, 2004). Social media platforms serve as an online area where members and users document their lives and the world around them. As well, platforms can become an area of discussion for a wide range of concerns that transcend school, work, home, or family, connecting users to a larger public discourse about issues of social and/or political importance. Social media is influential compared to other forms of 'traditional' media when it
comes to spreading a message. Rather than using traditional approaches of media such as print or radio, social media platforms communicate on rapid innovation and changing platforms that all
evolve in real time. When it comes to spreading a message by word of mouth, social media is readily available twenty-four hours a day making information accessible and obtainable at any time. An important aspect of activism via social media is that users may not view their social networking through the lens of activism. I contend that the face of activism is changing: one might not sign up for social movement work but are thrust into the organizing via a personal experience and having a platform to tell the world about that experience.

4. Morrill, Calvin. and Musheno, Michael. "Brown on Brown: The Institutional Conditioning of Racial Conflict in an Urban High School" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, Hilton Bonaventure, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 27, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-11-20 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: We analyze an incident of collective youth violence that occurred in an urban multiethnic high school and how it was conditioned by a dramatic institutional transformation of the school modeled in the vein of the “safe schools” movement of the late 20th and early 21st Century in the US. The incident – which some students at the school dubbed a “brown on brown” fight because it involved four U.S.-born Chicanos and four Mexican-born youth – resulted in multiple injuries to the youths involved and mobilized security guards and teachers to prevent further escalation. At the time of the incident, the school was in the midst of institutional change that radically altered its regulatory and physical architectures with the intent to improve security and safety for its students, teachers and staff. Contrary to these intentions, the incident, what we call an “institutional accident” reveals how the school’s transformation unsettled the youth culture in practice, including the ways that youth manage peer conflict on their own terms, and reified and racialized social boundaries among youth. We analyze the incident with field data drawn from our multiyear project on youth conflict. Our paper has implications for research on and policy relevance to youth culture and conflict in schools, the institutional construction of racial boundaries in schools, and the criminalization of schools.
