The McIntire Department of Music a colloquium by Shana Goldin-Perschbacher on Friday, October 20th, 2017 in 107 Old Cabell Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Shana Goldin-Perschbacher, a specialist in interdisciplinary popular music studies and identity studies, joined the Boyer faculty in 2014. Motivated by musical articulations of social justice issues, her explorations of contemporary sonic, visual, and social media take shape through critical, ethnographic, analytical, and historical methods. She has published in Popular Music, Women and Music, The Grove Dictionary of American Music, Oh Boy!: Masculinities and Popular Music, the Journal for the Society for American Music, and the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Queerness and Music. She has presented at conferences including the American Musicological Society, the Society for Ethnomusicology, the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, the Experience Music Project, the American Studies Association, and Feminist Theory and Music.  Her current research examines transgender and queer performances of Americana through the lens of queer sincerity.


At Temple, Goldin-Perschbacher will be teaching courses for music majors, non-majors, and graduate students in popular music, critical theory (especially engaging issues of identity in relation to the arts and popular culture), interdisciplinary music methodologies, and other music topics.


Goldin-Perschbacher was the first queer studies postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, the postdoctoral fellow in music in the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities at Stanford, and a lecturer in LGBT Studies at Yale University. She graduated from the first class of Ph.D. students in Critical and Comparative Studies in Music at the University of Virginia where her dissertation was supported by an American Association of University Women fellowship.  As an undergraduate at the University of Michigan she studied viola performance, English literature, and visual art, and remains an active amateur chamber musician.
