inna di dancehall Feb 24, 2007
Dr. Hope provides an etic view of the Jamaican subcultural dis/place which is the dancehall. Her work is built on a personal anthropological perspective that adds great value to the body of work that already exist on this subject. I look forward to her venture into the dialogue between the dancehall and rastafari.
