UNBINDING GENTILITY by Candace Bailey Receives NEH Open Book Award

We are delighted to announce that Candace Bailey’s book, Unbinding Gentility: Women Making Music in the Nineteenth-Century South, 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 four previous titles, Aaron Copland in Latin America: Music and Cultural Politics by Carol A. Hess, Photographic Presidents: Making History from Daguerreotype to Digital by Cara A. Finnegan, Transforming Women’s Education: Liberal Arts and Music in Female Seminaries by Jewel A. Smith, and Across the Waves: How the United States and France Shaped the International Age of Radio by Derek W. Vaillant.
