- University Park Campus Franklin Room Suite, Tutor Campus Center TCC 350
We are at an important crossroads in the global struggle for sexual and gender-related human rights. This event will bring together trailblazing academics, policymakers and activists who continue to pioneer this historic movement. As the panelists consider how the conceptual shifts to which they have contributed impacted the lived realities of sexual and gender minorities around the world, they will also delve into subsequent breakthroughs, backlashes and future possibilities. Join us for vivid discussions with leading human rights experts who have created previously unimaginable social change. Hear about the participants’ work, which began in the 1980s when they successfully pressured Amnesty International to defend the rights of lesbians and gay men. Discover how this work has informed ongoing social justice campaigns on the relevance of sexual orientation and gender identity-related rights to a number of domains, from local struggles for inclusive justice to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The continued evolution of this work raises key questions: How does change happen? What does it take for movements to sustain themselves? And what are future issues for academic and activist work at the intersection of sexualities, genders and rights? This talk is co-hosted by the USC Institute for Global Health, GlobeMed at USC, the Program on Global Health & Human Rights and Occidental College.read more

- Korean Hip Hop: A Conversation and Concert with Garion, Dok2, The Quiett, and DJ Son
- 11/17/2015 7:00pm - 9:00pm
- University Park Campus Bovard Auditorium
“You and me, the connecting link between us / that is the sound within us.”—from “YGGR” by Dok2, The Quiett, and Beenzino, featuring MC Meta of Garion
Meet five iconic South Korean hip hop artists—pioneering duo Garion (MC Meta and Naachal), rap superstars Dok2 and The Quiett, and award-winning battle DJ and turntablist DJ Son—in an exciting concert and conversation.
How did hip hop travel across musical, linguistic, geographical, and sociocultural boundaries to root itself in Korea? Now that it’s there, how is hip hop understood and lived in Korea? Serving as a connecting link, or yeon-gyeol-go-ri (YGGR), music brings together people, places, histories, and cultures. We invite you to follow the global travels of music through the lives and works of five influential artists who have made history in Korean hip hop.
Professor Josh Kun and PhD candidate Myoung-Sun (Kelly) Song of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism will engage these artists in a fascinating conversation about the meaning of hip hop in Korean society. Then, the artists will take the stage for an exciting live concert.
About the Artists:
Garion is a pioneering South Korean hip hop duo composed of MC Meta and Naachal, who have made a conscious decision to use only Korean in their lyrics. The team debuted in 1998 at Club Master Plan, a historic cradle for underground Korean hip hop. Today, they are among the most influential artists in the scene. The name Garion alludes to a mythical white horse with a black mane. (Facebook, Twitter)
Dok2 and The Quiett are co-CEOs of 1llionaire Records, one of the most successful hip hop labels in Korea. Dok2, who is of Korean, Spanish, and Filipino descent, is one of very few multiracial rappers in Korea. The Quiett is an award-winning rapper and producer who started his career in 2004 by co-founding Soul Company. From its inception in 2011, 1llionaire Records has set music trends and garnered fans internationally. (Dok2: Instagram, Twitter, Wikipedia / The Quiett: Instagram, Twitter, Wikipedia)
DJ Son is Korea’s first internationally award-winning battle DJ, turntablist, and Vestax Pro artist. Since 2000, he has traveled back and forth between Sydney and Seoul, actively participating in the hip hop scenes of both cities. He is the first Korean/Australian artist to have ITF, DMC, and Scribble Jam titles. His album The Abstruse Theory is considered to be the first abstract hip hop album in Korea. Currently, DJ Son heads 3rddan Records. He is also a member of Turntable Fetishistz and Back-n-Forth. DJ Son, with MC Meta, is part of Jazzhop, an innovative music group that combines jazz with hip hop. (Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter)
