Alejandro L. Madrid is author or editor of books and edited volumes about the intersection of modernity, tradition, globalization, and ethnic identity in popular and art music, dance, and expressive culture of Mexico, the US-Mexico border, and the circum-Caribbean. Working at the intersection of musicology, ethnomusicology, and performance studies, Madrid’s work interrogates neoliberalism, globalization, and postmodernism while exploring questions of transnationalism, diaspora, and migration; homophobia and constructions of masculinity; embodied culture; and historiography, narrative, biography theory, and alternative ways of knowledge production in music and sound practices from the long twentieth century. In 2017, he was awarded the Dent Medal for “outstanding contributions to musicology” by the Royal Musical Association and the International Musicological Society. He is the only Ibero-American to have received this award since its inception in 1961. He is also the recipient of top prizes from the Latin American Studies Association, the American Musicological Society, the ASCAP Foundation Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Awards, the International Association for the Study of Popular Music-US Branch, and Casa de las Américas, among others, as well as fellowships and grants from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Ford Foundation, and the Fulbright Program. Madrid is currently professor of musicology and ethnomusicology at Cornell University’s Department of Music. He is the editor of the series Currents in Iberian and Latin American Music for Oxford University Press, and is regularly invited as guest professor at universities in Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, and Uruguay. Most recently, he served as music advisor to acclaimed director Peter Greenaway, whose latest film, Eisenstein in Guanajuato, is set in 1930s Mexico.
