Feature: Joe Hart to Torino and 11 other Brits playing abroad this season

Few would’ve predicted at the start of the transfer window that David Luiz would end up back at Chelsea, Jack Wilshire would be on a season-long loan at Bournemouth, and that England’s number one, frozen out by new boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, would find himself in Italy at Serie A side Torino, but that’s football, it’s unpredicatble, unforgiving, and at times downright bizzare. Now the dust has settled and the domestic season is back underway this weekend, we can have a look at some of our other British players who will be joining Hart in tackling the difficult challenge of playing abroad.

Dissertation: European hip-hop: an in-depth analysis of the development of hip-hop in France, Italy and Germany during the 1980s and 1990s

Abstract:

This dissertation will provide an in-depth analysis into the development of hip-hop in three European countries: France, Italy and Germany, during the 1980s and 1990s. Drawing from the ideas of important theorists such as Andre Prevos, Tony Mitchell, Mark Pennay, and Dietmar Elflein, and a variety of relevant online articles, documentaries and films, it will show how each country adapted the musical idioms and styles of American hip-hop to create unique offshoots. Discussing the key artists within each country, and how hip-hop impacted on society. The key theories of Globalisation and Americanisation will be used to show how hip-hop arrived into Europe from America, and an overall background of the birth and growth of hip-hop from the depravity of the New York projects will also be given.
