Visiting Instructor and Jeffrey Campbell Fellow in Music Timothy Mangin participated in a symposium held at Lincoln Center in New York City July 13, on hip-hop music in Africa and the Americas.

Mangin, an ethnomusicologist, was a panelist in the discussion about the growth, impact and influences of hip hop music in Africa and the U.S. He is the author of Senegalese Rap and Black Transnationalism and Notes on Jazz in Senegal. The symposium was held in conjunction with a concert at Avery Fisher Hall on July 14 by Wyclef Jean and Daara J, titled "America <-> Africa - Hip Hop's Journey from Terra to the Streets."

Mangin holds a Master of Philosophy in Music (Ethnomusicology) degree from Columbia University and is completing a Doctor of Philosophy, also in music (ethnomusicology), at Columbia. He has designed and taught courses at St. Lawrence in Jazz in American Culture; Musics of the World: Africa and the Americas; Bebop and Beyond: Jazz in American Society; and Hip Hop and Modernity. While at Columbia University he wrote cultural annotations for the digital rendition of The Autobiography of Malcolm X for the Malcolm X Multimedia Study Environment Project and compiled jazz, rhythm and blues and spoken work music (and liner notes information) for a CD accompanying an edited Cultural Reader on Malcolm X. In 2000 he was a performance instructor for jazz and Western art music at the National School of the Arts in Dakar, Senegal.
