  • Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager, has a new book out as of this month from Ashgate Publishing. The book is Women Composers and Music Technology in the United States Crossing the Line and is described thusly (one of the women profiled in Hinkle-Turner's book is Christine Baczewska, who is Philip Baczewski's sister):

This book is the most definitive attempt to date to discuss the achievements of women as composers of experimental and avant-garde music from the 1930s to the present day. Using a wealth of primary material, it also explores currently relevant issues in gender and technology. Drawing out the relationships between composers and their working environments, and between teachers and students, Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner discusses the contribution of women composers to electroacoustic music. Includes a bibliography and discography covering the work of ninety composers.

Contents: Introduction; Precedents and pioneers; A generation of growth and influence; Continued promise for the future; In the spotlight: role models rise in the mainstream; Finding their visual voice: composers explore multimedia technology; Where are we now?; Sources for electroacoustic music by women; Selected discography; Bibliography; Index.
