Jooyoung Lee is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Bissell-Heyd Fellow in the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto. He was previously a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. Jooyoung Lee is the author of Blowin’ Up: Rap Dreams in South Central (March 2016, University of Chicago Press). In this urban ethnography, Lee highlights how hip hop can offer a creative alternative to the gang lifestyle, substituting verbal competition for physical violence, and provides an outlet for setting goals and working toward them. We are thrilled to partner with the Penn Injury Science Center (PISC) to have Jooyoung Lee back in Philadelphia for this! You can find more information about Jooyoung Lee and his book on his website.
