I just got back from chairing an amazing panel I organized on women in the blogosphere at The American Studies Association (ASA) in Baltimore. entiled "Digital Displays: Women Imagining The Blogosphere as Alternative Public Spheres" sponsored by the American Studies Women’s Committee on Saturday, October 22nd. The amazing panel featured Jennifer Stover Ackerman ( SUNY Binghamton and Editor in Cheif of the sound studies blog Sounding Out!) Tanya Golash-Boza (University of Kansas, author of the blog Get a Life, Ph.D), Judy Lubin (Howard University, author of the blog Judy Lubin’s Leading Voices) and Jamie Schmidt Wagman (Saint Louis University). I hope to upload paper abstracts here soon. A great weekend and an important panel that engages digital humanities, sound studies, social networking and web activism.

Hip-hop American opens KU's University Theater Season

My new improvised solo show Hip-hop American opened the Univresity of Kansas Department of Theatre's 2011-2012 season. The show was sold out with standing room only. The show won "best of fringe" status at The Kansas City Fringe Festival, Summer 2011. Thanks to everyone that came to the fringe and KU show. Hip-hop American is en route to several universities in Spring 2012. If everything works out, I will take the show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer. Here are a few links to the press:
