Join Co-Editors and Contributors, Ellen Sandor, Donna Cox, and Janine Fron for a special book signing of New Media Futures: The Rise of Women in the Digital Arts. Trailblazing women working in digital arts media and education established the Midwest as an international center for the artistic and digital revolution in the 1980s and beyond — creating an authentic, community-driven atmosphere of creative expression, innovation, and interdisciplinary collaboration that crossed gender lines and introduced artistically informed approaches to advanced research. Interweaving historical research with interviews and full-color illustrations, New Media Futures captures the spirit and contributions of twenty-two women working within emergent media as diverse as digital games, virtual reality, medicine, super-computing visualization, and browser-based art.  Book Contributors who will also be present include: Carolina Cruz-Neira, Barbara Sykes, Margaret Dolinsky, Mary Rasmussen, and Maxine Brown.
