Music Department Guest Lecture Series – Why the Next Song Matters: Streaming, Recommendation, Scarcity
Eric Drott (UT-Austin)
Location is wheelchair accessible
Eric Drott received his PhD from Yale University in 2001, where he taught prior to coming to the University of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on contemporary music cultures, music and protest, genre theory, avant-garde movements in music, French cultural politics, and the sociology of music. His book, Music and the Elusive Revolution (University of California Press, 2011), examines music and politics in France after May ’68, in particular how different music communities (jazz, rock, contemporary music) responded to the upheavals of the period.
The Department of Music acknowledges the generous support of the Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund at Yale University for assistance with this series.
