17. Editorial Board Member, Evental Aesthetics (London), 2017-
My interests in jazz are:
avant-garde jazz; the history and philosophy of jazz; the downtown New York City avant-garde jazz community; jazz tenor saxophone; academic studies of jazz from the angles of contemporary cultural studies, social and political thought, aesthetics, and philosophy of music.
More about what I do:
I am a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at the University of South Florida, working in areas such as aesthetics and philosophy of music. I am especially interested in cultural, social, and political theories of jazz, all theorized from both contemporary and historical perspectives. My doctoral dissertation is on Adorno's philosophy of music.
