Dr Kruse Rocks at EMP

RSU professor Dr. Holly Kruse will represent the university at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum EMP Pop Conference in Cleveland April 19th and 20th. Kruse will be a part of a round table discussion entitled “Is a World of “Posts” a Post-Canon World?”. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s education program has become one of the most celebrated and award-winning fine arts museums in the nation.

The roundtable is set to discuss the status of music canon in a growing world of algorithms and online libraries. “I’ve presented at three previous EMP Pop Conferences, and it’s one of my favorite conferences. Panels include rock critics, academics, and musicians, which makes for a fascinating mix. Usually the EMP holds one annual Pop Conference, but this year it’s doing several regional conferences. Next year it will be a national and really, international, conference back at the Experience Music Project in Seattle.”

Dr. Kruse has been an instructor at RSU since 2010 and is an accomplished author. She has presented at previous conferences including the Central States Communication Association and the Association of Internet Researchers.
