Check out my new video, “In Memoriam”
Check out my new article, “Music Theory and the White Racial Frame“
I wrote the following six blog posts after my plenary talk, “Music Theory’s White Racial Frame,” at the Society for Music Theory Annual Meeting in November 2019. After the talk I was awestruck by the reaction. Hundreds of people from all over the world reached out to thank me for raising the issues I did. Subsequently I had many lengthy discussions with senior colleagues in the field but, despite stated good intentions, I realized that they were actually uninterested in true antiracist and antisexist structural change. These six posts grew out of these discussions and the work that I did prior to my talk. It is my hope that they can instigate constructive dialog so that we can begin to make real antiracist/antisexist change in music theory. It is best to read in order. Enjoy!
