I am a PhD student in historical musicology at Florida State University. Broadly conceived, my research interests include 20th and 21st century American music culture, the ethics of historiography, and the overlap between structures of authority, political discourse, and aesthetic significance. My master’s thesis centers on Aaron Copland’s early symphonic jazz in the context of his transnational musical training and unique social position.
