Dornsife Global

Bookpacking in Louisiana. Examining art and culture in Cuba. Digging up ancient artifacts in Greece. Exploring hip hop culture in Paris. USC Dornsife students reap the educational rewards of travel — benefiting from a tradition that stretches back as far as ancient times.


In his new book, USC Dornsife’s Edwin Hill examines the sounds of the black Atlantic diaspora during the 1920s and 30s — and how those sonic spaces contest colonial and anti-colonial ideas about race and gender.
