What Difference Does It Make? Music and Gender, April 26–29

Meet Our Editors

While we will not have a booth at the Pop Conference next week in Seattle, we will be well-represented by our Music Acquisitions Editor, Raina Polivka, and H. Samy Alim, co-editor (with Jeff Chang) of our new Hip Hop Studies Series.

The Hip Hop Studies Series publishes critical, accessible books by innovative thinkers exploring Hip Hop’s cultural, musical, social, and political impact around the world—from Los Angeles to London to Lagos and all points beyond and in between. Like Hip Hop Culture itself, the series advances original, creative, public-facing, social justice-oriented, dope intellectual work.

Have an idea or project to pitch? Follow us on Twitter at @ucpress to find where to meet our editors on Saturday at the Pop Conference.

Be sure to check out sessions by UC Press authors while at the conference too, including Loren Kajikawa, Judith A. PerainoTyina Steptoe, and Christina Zanfagna.
