Dr. D. Rose Elder

Currently on a brief sabbatical in Lefkosia, Cyprus, I am writing an academic book on Amish singing and a children's book about art in Cyprus while learning to play the bouzouki. My education in music history, theory, and composition with a parallel education in theology and sociology interweave into broad interests in all areas of justice and tolerance. Artists as teachers and lightning rods struggle to play a serious role in exposing the truths and fallacies of so-called modern, informed living and in framing both the beauty and terror of being alive, alone, powerful, and colonized.
