Model Submission

Taken from a recent University essay, this submission serves to guide would be contributors to the sort of material the journal is looking for in its essay and academic section, with the correct format.

Short Articles Wanted

In response to the incredible reaction we’ve had with our first Call for Papers, The UK Journal of Hip Hop Studies has decided to open another space that focuses on the knowledge and experiences of performers, writers and practitioners.  Simply, we are looking for short articles that answer the question:

“How much does regional authenticity matter to your work?”

Contributors are encouraged to use the language, style and form that comes naturally to both them and their work. There is no requirement to adopt any academic style. Articles should contain a brief introduction to the artist and their work.

Submit to the general editors at: S.May2@liverpool.ac.uk, mdra009@live.rhul.ac.uk, or UKJHHS@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is September 14th.

The Journal is open for submissions of essays and articles. Essays of between 4,000-5,000 words in lengths will be accepted, with a few spaces for longer essays of 6,000-8,000 words available. Essays should be formatted with MHRA referencing, and footnotes. Submissions should be presented in Palatino in size 12 font, with justified paragraphs.

Submit to the general editors at: S.May2@liverpool.ac.uk, mdra009@live.rhul.ac.uk, or UKJHHS@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is September 14th.

Submissions will be reviewed by the editing team and then by a Committee of Readers made up of esteemed academics.

The Journal is formed in response to the need for a regular publication in this rapidly expanding area of study in British academia. The publication will be composed of peer-reviewed articles and book reviews with an emphasis on British and Irish subject matter and authors. The Journal aims to take an interdisciplinary humanities approach to Hip-Hop, with an interest in publishing writing that examines how the genre intersects with and informs society, literature and history. The Journal provides a means for early-career and post-graduate academics to have their work published.

What is the UK Journal of Hip Hop Studies?

UK Journal of Hip-Hop Studies

Casting an Academic Eye on Rhyme and Music in Britain and Beyond 

The Journal is formed in response to the need for a regular publication in this rapidly expanding area of study in British academia. The publication will be composed of peer-reviewed articles and book reviews with an emphasis on British and Irish subject matter and authors. The Journal aims to take an interdisciplinary humanities approach to Hip-Hop, with an interest in publishing writing that examines how the genre intersects with and informs society, literature and history. The Journal provides a means for early-career and post-graduate academics to have their work published, whilst remaining open to contributions from more established academics if the interest precipitates.

In the few months since the Journal’s conception, an excellent team of editors have been assembled, hailing from the Universities of Liverpool, Durham, Leeds, Oxford, and Royal Holloway. We are also proud to have secured a diverse and formidable Committee of Readers, featuring Prof. Fred D’Aguiar of UCLA, Dr. Alex Stevenson of Leeds Beckett, Dr. Niall Carson of the University of Manchester, and Dr. Andrew Warnes of the University of Leeds. This is a student-led Journal which aims to change the shape of Hip-Hop academia in the UK.
