The Anthropology doctoral seminar (ANTH 6000) benefitted immensely from a discussion with renowned Kenyan hip hop artist, Juliani, during its class on April 7th. One of the students, Doug Ragan, was facilitating discussion of an ethnography he chose for the class to read for that day, Mwenda Ntarangwi’s The Street is My Pulpit: Hip Hop and Christianity in Kenya (2016), which is a collaboration with Juliani focusing on how he uses his music and community work to speak to and try to assist everyday struggles for the majority of the Kenyan youth. Through discussions with the class, Juliani reflected on his life and how it was represented in the ethnography, which provided a richer understanding of not only the ethnography but also larger themes in the field of “engaged anthropology,” which is the focus of the Carleton anthropology doctoral program.
