Write to Rock features people who write about music, addressing overlapping audiences through the popular and underground press, the academy and the blogosphere. These writers question conventional stories of popular music and cultural production that erase the influence of women and women of color. They ask us to consider how we narrate the past and the present with regard to particular performers, genres, and sounds. They offer feminist histories and accounts, creating new methods, formats, platforms and frameworks for understanding popular music.
