I’m interested in blues and jazz historiography, the reception and canonization of American black music, nostalgia, and historical imagination toward the South. Other academic pastimes of mine include studying the American expatriates in early twentieth-century Paris and applying the rhetoric of Southern gothic literature to music. As a classically trained pianist, I hold late Romantic piano music close to heart, as well as nineteenth-century artistic context in Europe.
