NOW!

What De Angela is up to right now! (This brilliant idea is taken from Derek Siver’s now page.)

De Angela currently lives, works, and plays in New York City. Professionally, she is an Associate Vice Provost and Industry Professor at NYU, but for her now page, she will focus primarily on her personal, passion projects which more often than not evolve around Prince:

  • Writing an essay for inclusion in the Interactions journal Special Issue “Dream Factories: Prince, Sign O’ The Times, Box Sets & Cultural Artefacts.”
  • Researching and preparing her presentation, “Pour Some Water on Me: Prince and the Ohio Players” for The Second Dayton Funk Symposium at the University of Dayton, currently rescheduled for November 2021.
  • Planning her 2022 Prince symposia, 3-day, hybrid (hopefully) #TripleThreat40 for 40 years of Prince’s 1999, The Time’s What Time Is It?, and Vanity 6’s debut, and 1-day, virtual #SexyMF30 for 30 years of Prince’s Symbol album.
