Interested in creative research? Check out the Lane Fellowship

The Lane Fellowship program provides selected fellows with a small stipend, instruction in creative research practices with Archives & Special Collections materials, and support for their projects from library staff and their fellowship cohort. This has been an especially valuable experience for students developing thesis or capstone work, but is also open to students with independent projects. Applications due October 11.

When They're Not Teaching

A behind-the-scenes glimpse at the faculty's research and creative work

Professor Amy Coddington's first book, How Hip Hop Became Hit Pop: Radio, Rap, and Race (pictured left), will be published this fall by University of California Press. Weaving together a genre history with industry analysis, the book examines how rap broke through to a white mainstream audience in the 1980s and 1990s through programming on commercial radio stations.
