Musicology/Matters is a new music blog coordinated by Kariann Goldschmitt and Philip Gentry. The two of us are both doctoral students in musicology at UCLA. Kariann is writing a dissertation on the reception and representation of Brazilian music in the United States, while I'm writing on American music during McCarthyism. Both of us have individual blogs elsewhere--here and here--but we also wanted to create a forum where we could have more focused discussions about musicology, and also provide a space for some of our non-blogging friends and colleagues to contribute occasional entries. To that end, our idea is that we will have occasional themes about which we will both contribute posts, and invite others to contribute as well. Do you have an idea for a theme, or wish to write a post? Let us know!
