Steven Rings' Bob Dylan Article Garners Award

The 2014 AMS / SMT Conference took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this past weekend, where Associate Professor Steven Rings received the Outstanding Publication Award from the SMT's Popular Music Interest Group for his article "A Foreign Sound to Your Ear: Bob Dylan Performs 'It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)', 1964 - 2009" (Music Theory Online, 2013).

The panel stated that the piece "exhibits a depth of research seldom encountered in a single article, not only providing the kind of close reading needed for such an in-depth examination, but also a method of analysis that could be applied to other singers." Congrats Steve!
