A Note from the Chair: After a long and grueling start, the SIUC student section appears to be vibrant collective. We are fortunate to already have interested members from three University colleges and facilities and other resources at our disposal. Our challenge will be uniting media theorists with practitioners on this research-university campus while raising awareness of the value of sound as both an expressive medium and a locus of scientific inquiry and innovation. With B.A., M.S., M.A., M.F.A, and Ph.D. academic programs under the same roof, our section should increase significantly in future months and years.
