Where: Goodspeed Hall, Fulton Recital Hall

Description: Phil Ford is Associate Professor of musicology at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. His published work has focused on postwar American popular music (especially jazz and film music), American cold war culture, radical and counter-cultural intellectual history, and sound and performance. He is the author of Dig: Sound and Music in Hip Culture (Oxford University Press, 2013), a cultural and intellectual history of hipness in American life from the 1940s through the 1960s situated in the context of American intellectual engagement with the Cold War. He is also the co-author (with Jonathan Bellman) of the musicology blog Dial ‘M’ for Musicology, which he founded in 2006 and maintains to this day. His current interests revolve around music and philosophy and, more particularly, on magical and occult styles of thought; at present, he is working on a book on this topic.

Presented by the Department of Music. The “Arts and the Nuclear Age” lecture series is partially supported by the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
