AARON COPLAND IN LATIN AMERICA by Carol A. Hess Receives NEH Open Book Award

We are delighted to announce that Carol A. Hess’s forthcoming book, Aaron Copland in Latin America: Music and Cultural Politics, has been awarded funding from the Fellowships Open Book Program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  

The Fellowships Open Book Program is an initiative to make recently published books freely available online. In the spirit of furthering scholarship, the program allows teachers, students, scholars, and the public to read humanities books that can be downloaded or redistributed for no charge. The program specifically supports books developed in the course of a previous NEH fellowship. 

The University of Illinois Press has published open access editions with funding from the Fellowships Open Book Program for two previous titles, Photographic Presidents: Making History from Daguerreotype to Digital by Cara A. Finnegan and Transforming Women’s Education: Liberal Arts and Music in Female Seminaries by Jewel A. Smith. You can find the Open Access edition of Photographic Presidents here and Transforming Women’s Education here.  

Across the Waves: How the United States and France Shaped the International Age of Radio by Derek W. Vaillant also received funding through the Fellowships Open Book Program, and the freely available eBook is forthcoming.  

Aaron Copland in Latin America will be published in February 2023 and is available for pre-order now.
