What We've Been Up To (Summer 1996)

Congratulations to Professor Marsha Houston, one of the editors of Our Voices: Essays in Ethnicity, Culture and Communication (Roxbury Press). The volume, co-edited with Alberto Gonzalez and Victoria Chen, won the1995 Outstanding Book Award from the Intercultural Division of the Speech Communication Association. More telling, though, is the fact that the second edition of the book sold out even before it was off the presses.

August was a busy month for Susan Tucker. She attended Rare Book School at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Then she travelled to San Diego where she acted as co-chair of the Women's Collections Roundtable at the annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists and served as chair and commentator on a panel discussion of feminist research methodology and its effect on the management of archives and theories about archival research.

In June, Beth Willinger attended the meetings of the National Women's Studies Association at Skidmore College and the meetings of the National Council for Research on Women held in Chicago. Beth serves as treasurer of the NCRW and is spearheading their newly created Development Committee. Her article, "Shifting Ground: Women's Centers and the Process of Change," will appear in the Handbook for the College and University Women's Center due to be published this winter by Greenwood Publishing Group.

In July, Susanne Dietzel traveled to the University of Minnesota and successfully defended her doctoral dissertation in American Studies. Congratulations, Doctor Dietzel!
