The Contest of the Fruits, edited by Guantian Ha and Slavs and Tatars, Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, published by Haverford College and MIT Press.

Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities celebrates the launch of the book The Contest of the Fruits, published by Haverford College and MIT Press. 

A companion to the exhibition (on view through December 12, 2021) and event series, the book brings together artists, academics, poets, and performers to examine subjects often considered mutually exclusive (for example, religion and hip hop). It offers essays by leading scholars and journalists that cover topics ranging from language politics to the prominence of Uyghur rappers in China.
