Isabel Machado and I are starting a special podcast series on the New Books Network, “New Books in Celebration Studies” and welcome collaborations. If you are the author of a book that investigates celebrations, festivities, or any act of recognizing something or someone through ritual, we would love to talk to you about it in an episode. And if you would like to be a guest host for the series please contact us.
Here’s a bit of insight about what I’ve been up to since the start of social distancing.
I’m honored to have been selected as a recipient of the Society for American Music’s Adrienne Fried Block Fellowship! Congrats should also be extended to the other winner, Kyle DeCoste! Check out his upcoming book about the Stooges Brass Band (https://www.upress.state.ms.us/Books/C/Can-t-Be-Faded)
