Help us build your reading list

In order to expand the reading list it is necessary to reach out to the community to locate books, articles: journal or print, of women who have written in the fields of sound and music technology, but also on areas such as audio cultures, music, the sonic arts and acoustics. We feel it is also vitally important to propagate this list with female writers from around the world to highlight, where we can, academic contributions to these fields in whatever language and from all cultural backgrounds.

Our timeline and world map space are very visible indicators of where our authors are currently limited to, with contributors stemming primarily from north America and Europe. In order to widen this list we have created a form below where you can add to our list publications you feel should be there and/or your own publications. In order to make our history timeline view engaging to young researchers, as part of our Researching Women in a Box project, Researching Women in Sound, we would like the timeline to be visually dynamic. So if you can provide book cover images, links to audio/visual material etc., related to the publications you submit that would be very helpful.

Thank you for helping us.
