2011 Faculty Research

Kevin Bartig, assistant professor of musicology received a Kluge Fellowship from the Library of Congress in 2011, a prestigious and highly competitive award that enabled him to spend the academic year in residence at the library. He conducted research related to Cold War-era cultural institutions and the formation of American-Soviet cultural diplomacy between 1941 and 1960. His work is enriching our understanding of the ways in which American musicians interacted with their Soviet counterparts to defy the Iron Curtain. See more details.

The MSU College of Music’s Education Area hosted the Seventh International Symposium on the Sociology of Music Education in October of 2011. This four-day event brought researchers from four continents to campus to explore the intersections of music, education, and culture around the world.

Ken Prouty, assistant professor of jazz studies and musicology and area chair of musicology, published Knowing Jazz: Community, Pedagogy, and Canon in the Information Age in December 2011, as part of the American Made Music Series. Publisher: University Press of Mississippi.
