New BSides Publication

SLIS Alum Rachel D. Hall’s article, “Learning Between Borders” has just been published by the SLIS journal BSides.

Hall originally presented the article in Professor Jim Elmborg’s class, Analysis of Scholarly Domains. According to the abstract the essay, “critically confronts and transgresses the disciplinary structure of information production, both inside the Academy and out. Scholars of Hip-Hop will be especially interested in the author's analysis of Hip-Hop as a scholarly discourse, and her argument that different genres of scholarly discourse, such as Hip-Hop and MLA-style English, can and indeed should be blended within the Academy to stimulate new ways of thinking.”

BSides is an open-access, peer-reviewed publication for the SLIS community. Works in progress and works in alternative forms, including websites and posters, are encouraged.
