Biography

Nomi Dave is an interdisciplinary researcher and scholar on voice, violence, and emotion in public life. Her work focuses on the Republic of Guinea and francophone West Africa, and explores the limits and possibilities of music and voice in political contexts. Her recent book, The Revolution’s Echoes: Music, Politics, and Pleasure in Guinea (2019, University of Chicago Press), considers how authoritarianism becomes meaningful for ordinary people. Through a study of music and politics in Guinea, the book challenges common views of political music, and explores why musicians and their audiences might choose to support an authoritarian state. 
 
Nomi’s current project is a collaboration with a feminist collective in Guinea, and examines the role of the voice in response to sexual violence. Through a series of case-studies, from music and talk radio to street protests and legal mechanisms, the project explores new and old forms of vocal practices and activism against gender-based violence in Guinea. In conjunction with Guinean activists, she is currently developing a series of radio shorts for local broadcast, on women’s experiences and histories in Guinea. 
 
Nomi received her PhD from Oxford University, and previously taught at Duke University, in the departments of Music and Cultural Anthropology. She is a former lawyer, and has worked in the fields of immigration law, refugee rights, and women’s rights.
