Tricia Rose (born 1962) is an American sociologist and author who pioneered scholarship on hip hop. Her studies mainly probe the intersectionality of pop music and gender. Now at Brown University, she is a professor of Africana Studies and is the director of the Center for Study of Race and Ethnicity in America. Rose also co-hosts a podcast, The Tight Rope, with Cornel West.
Early years & education
Born in New York City, Rose lived in Harlem until 1970 when, at age seven, her family moved from their tenement building to Co-op City, a new and large complex of cooperative apartments in the northeast Bronx.
Rose earned a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from Yale University. Earning a PhD degree in American studies, partly under George Lipsitz, from Brown University, Rose became the first person in the United States to write a doctoral dissertation on hip hop.
For nine years, Rose taught Africana studies at New York University. In 2002, she moved to the University of California, Santa Cruz, and in July 2003 became chair of its American Studies department.
Now at Brown University, Rose is the Chancellor's Professor of Africana Studies. And since July 2013, she has been, at Brown, the director of the Center for Study of Race and Ethnicity in America.
Rose's first book, Black Noise, emerging from her doctoral dissertation on hip hop, sparked academic recognition of this subculture's legacy. The Village Voice placed it among the top 25 books of 1994, and the Before Columbus Foundation, in 1995, gave it an American Book Award.
