I am a music historian specializing in the late 20th century music, with a current research focus on the late Soviet Union, religion, spirituality and secularity. My research interests are guided by a broad question of what inspires contemporary composers, in particular, the influence of spiritual or philosophical beliefs on their music and its reception.

2019    Experiencing Armenian Music in Turkey: An Ethnography of Musicultural Memory, by B. Yıldız. Asian Music 50(1).
2016    The Musicology of Record Production, by S. Zagor…

Eliot Bates, an ethnomusicologist by training, has contributed new approaches to the study of music’s instruments, materialities, technologies, infrastructures, and production workflows. From 2004 to 2016, he researched these within Istanbul’s recording studios, luthieries, and music industry; since 2013, his work has broadened geographically to consider European, North American, and Australian audio technology gear cultures. Committed to social science and ethnographic methods, Bates incorporates an experimental practice-led research design, whether that entails his ongoing studio-based audio engineering work, collaborative recordings featuring the 11-stringed oud, or Makamqore solo Eurorack performances for the New York Modular Society. Bates has served as either performer, composer, or audio engineer to more than 80 albums produced in the U.S., UK, and Turkey, as well as several TV series and feature films. In addition to a robust body of journal articles and book chapters, Bates has published three books in his field. In 2018, with Samantha Bennett, he co-edited Critical Approaches to the Production of Music and Sound (Bloomsbury Academic), a collection of essays on the intersections of music and technology from leading thinkers in music, audio engineering, anthropology, and media. Digital Tradition: Arrangement and Labor in Istanbul’s Recording Studio Culture (Oxford University Press, 2016) offers an ethnography of contemporary studio music production in an effort to investigate the emerging milieu of Anatolian ethnic music, while Music in Turkey: Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture (Oxford University Press, 2011) draws on Bates’ extensive fieldwork to situate Turkey’s diverse musical sounds within their respective social contexts and political modernity.

MemberGhazzal Dabiri

I hold a PhD in Iranian Studies from UCLA. My research focuses on narratives of power and holiness in medieval Islamic Iran. I am primarily interested in themes related to kingship, sainthood, social identity building, the supernatural. My interest in these narratives partly arises from their fascinating itineraries, which have taken them from the eastern Iranian heartlands in antiquity down to the pre-modern era and from the Balkans to Malaysia. I am currently working on a book project, which has the working title “God’s Kings: The Medieval Reception of Ancient Narratives of Kingship.” And I am also editing two volumes dealing with hagiographies across Eurasia. One, which has the working title, Imitatio Theclae, is on the literary reception of the Acts of Paul and Thecla and the other looks at how various hagiographers across the Indo-Mediterranean world narrated power and authority.   I am recipient of the following grants and awards: 2015, European Research Council fellow at Ghent University in Belgium; 2011, Fulbright Research Fellowship, Cairo, Egypt; and 2008, Honorable Mention for the Best Dissertation from the Foundation for Iranian Studies.   From 2008-2014, I was the coordinator of the Persian Studies Program at Columbia University where, in addition to teaching and mentoring students, I organized a successful lecture series which included talks by established and up-and-coming scholars, artists, film makers, and musicians. From 2006-2008, I was the director for the Persian Studies Program at California State, Fullerton which included a summer study-abroad semester in Yerevan, Armenia.   I have been a long-time member of the Association for the Study of Persianate Societies (ASPS) which is committed to bringing scholars from around the world interested in all fields related to Iran and the Persianate worlds, past and present. I served as its newsletter editor, secretary of the association, and member of the board of directors.

MemberKeelan Overton

Keelan Overton is a historian of art and architecture specializing in the eastern Islamic world from Greater Iran to South Asia. She received her PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles (2011) and her MA from Williams College (2004). She approaches visual culture broadly—urbanism, architecture and the environment, surface revetment, portable objects, arts of the book, the craft industries, documentary photography and film—and ideally from an interdisciplinary lens.   Since summer 2015, Overton has been an Independent Scholar based in Santa Barbara, California, where she divides her time between research, writing, teaching, and travel. She has taught at Occidental College, UCLA, UCSB, and Pomona College, and her recent travels as a researcher and tour lecturer have taken her to the Deccan (southern India), Iran, Morocco, Scotland, Armenia, and Georgia. In 2019-20, she was a Visiting Scholar in the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and in the summers of 2016 and 2018, she held research residencies at the University of St Andrews.   Overton previously served as the Curator of Islamic Art at the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art (Shangri La) in Honolulu (2011-12) and as an Associate Curator in the Art of the Middle East department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2014-15). Her exposure to the Shangri La collection in 2003 inspired a longstanding interest in the reviving, collecting, and recasting of Iran’s cultural heritage. This research has been published in the journal West 86th (Bard/Chicago), the edited volume Arthur Upham Pope and a New Survey of Persian Art (Brill), and the exhibition catalog Doris Duke’s Shangri La (Rizzoli).   Overton’s recent edited volume Iran and the Deccan: Persianate Art, Culture, and Talent in Circulation, 1400-1700 (Indiana University Press, June 2020) features 14 essays by an interdisciplinary cast of 18 scholars specializing in history, art and architectural history, literatures and languages, and book arts and conservation.   Iran and the Deccan emerged out of Overton’s 2011 UCLA dissertation on book arts, painting, and collecting at the Bijapur court of Ibrahim ‘Adil Shah II (r. 1580-1627). Her dissertation research has been published as a series of journal articles (Muqarnas) and essays in edited volumes, including The Visual World of Muslim India (ed. Parodi, I.B. Tauris), Indo-Muslim Cultures in Transition (eds. Patel & Leonard, Brill), and The Empires of the Near East (ed. Khafipour, Columbia). Most recently, chapter 10 of Iran and the Deccan is the culmination of her multi-year study, with book conservator Kristine Rose-Beers, of a Timurid-Safavid Qur’an manuscript once preserved in Ibrahim II’s Bijapur library and today in the University of St Andrews.   Overton’s current book project—Iran Unglazed: A Local-Global History of Persian Tilework—explores Persian tilework as a potent shapeshifting commodity between the field, museum, photograph, market, and imagination. She has been named a 2020-21 Getty Scholar (theme “The Fragment”) and hopes to be in residence at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles at some point in 2021 (timing tbd, per covid-19). Her Getty project is titled “Persian Architecture Fragmented: The Biographies, Trails, and Economies of Iran’s Tiled Surfaces, c. 1820–2020.” A component of this research has recently been published as a journal article: “The Emamzadeh Yahya at Varamin: A Present History of a Living Shrine, 2018–20” (with Kimia Maleki).   Current teaching (spring 2021): Pomona College, Department of Art History, ARHI 120, Introduction to Islamic Art and Architecture
