Composing Disability

For the past 2+ years, I have been busy planning a university-wide symposium that will bring together composition studies and disability studies folks to discuss, well, composition studies and disability studies. The title of the symposium is Composing Disability: Writing, Communication, Culture, and the detailed overview is available on GWU's Disability Support Services' website. RSVP information forthcoming.

Slow Start

Well, it's been a somewhat slow start to my summer research duties. Teaching has been keeping me reasonably busy. However, I have been able to knock off about six books from my big summer reading list.

Also, the assorted logistical tasks that I've been completing per the request of Ashgate Publishing have paid some pretty substantial dividends, as the anthology that I have been co-editing, The Politics of Post 9/11 Music: Sound, Trauma, and the Music Industry in the Time of Terror, now has a publication date and an official web presence! Exciting times indeed.

I have also created a Twitter account to publicize my various publication work. A link to that account will be available shortly for anyone who is interested. In the meantime, savor the joy of the Heat's loss.
