In Search Of The Wind-Band (Video Trailer) Book Video Excerpts From Around The Globe, Dan Rager

Dan Rager

 “International Instrumental Dissemination” describes instrument types in 16 countries that include Rock & Roll to Sousa and Puccini. This book explores detailed and precise history. The 21 chapters contain hundreds of photos, videos, mp3 and pdf files bringing to life unknown cultures and ensembles from around the globe from which I visited and recorded first hand. The book is designed to take an entire semester to study and explore. I promise you have never heard or seen most of these groups much less the enormous, precise evolution of instruments presented in the book. Where did our modern instruments evolve from? Do ...

Running Bamboo: A Mentoring Network Of Women Intending To Thrive In Academia, Vonzell Agosto, Zorka Karanxha, Annie Unterreiner, Deirdre Cobb-Roberts, Talia Esnard, Ke Wu, Makini Beck

Deirdre Cobb-Roberts

This article is based on the authors’ experiences as women academics who engage in informal peer mentoring to persist in the cultural milieus of their respective institutions. The authors draw on poststructural perspectives and the metaphor of the rhizome “running bamboo” to illustrate the connections they forged in a mentoring network that folds across multiethnic, multilingual, and multi-geographic spaces. The analysis of personal narratives surfaced the significance of context for understanding each other’s persistence in the academy. By rhizomatically constructing personal and professional narratives, the authors identified how shared experiences in academia, the contextual variations among them, and a ...
