BIO

Born and raised in South Africa, Warrick’s primary research interrogates racial and language identity within the “mixed race” or “Coloured” hiphop community of greater Cape Town. His monograph project “In the Mix” engages ethnography, music theoretical analysis, (visual) anthropology, political history, linguistics, and Critical Race Theory to explore the possibilities and limitations of Blackness as they relate to musical assertions of self-identity. Warrick’s areas of interest include racial representation in African and African American popular music, music and migration, ASL interpretation and music, and drag performance and the voice.
