McGee, Kristin (Ph.D. 2003)

Published by Wesleyan University Press, Kristin McGee’s new book, Some Liked It Hot: Jazz Women in Film and Television, 1928-1959,  examines emerging media such as vaudeville, variety shows, radio, film, and television, and how new technologies supported, sustained, or prohibited professional women’s performative and musical lives. Further, Some Liked It Hot looks at the underlying tensions surrounding the transformation of gender and race relations from the second industrial revolution to the more conservative and economically prosperous postwar era. McGee is an assistant professor of popular music at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. She plays the saxophone and clarinet.
