A UNCG music professor contributed a chapter to a book that has won the American Musicological Society’s 2014 Ruth Solie Award.

“Music and Protest in 1968,” edited by Beate Kutschke and Barley Norton and published by Cambridge University Press, was honored with the Solie Award, given each year to a collection of musicological essays of exceptional merit published during the previous year. Kailan R. Rubinoff, associate Professor of musicology in UNCG’s School of Music, Theatre and Dance, wrote a chapter of the book entitled “A Revolution in Sheep’s Wool Stockings: Early Music and 1968.”

Established to honor the editor of “Musicology and Difference: Gender and Sexuality in Music Scholarship,” a field-defining and field-changing book, the Solie Award acknowledges the value of the individual authors’ contributions to the volume while recognizing the central role of editors in conceiving and shaping the whole.
