As an active musicologist and historian, I am regularly working on research for a number of publications and other scholarly projects and contributions. Here are three publications that I would especially like to highlight for you. ~ ~ ~
Muted Anxiety: American Film Music in a Suburban Age (Oxford University Press, 2014) is now available. I edited this collection on film and television music with my colleague, Dr. Anthony Bushard. You can purchase a copy here.
Music and History: Bridging the Disciplines (University of Mississippi Press, 2005) has celebrated the tenth anniversary of its publication. I edited this collection with my colleague, Dr. Jeffrey Jackson. We presented a retrospective reflection on this work at the national conference of the American Historical Association in Washington in January 2015. You can purchase a copy here.
This interesting collection, Buffy, Ballads, and Bad Guys Who Sing: Music in the Worlds of Joss Whedon, includes an essay of mine on music in the series Firefly.
