I’m currently finishing up two research projects:

And developing several more:

  • Jewish Sound at the Urban Periphery, which attempts to understand the historical relationship between Jewish urban mobility and changing practices of Jewish music in postwar Philadelphia,
  • a sound studies/acoustic ecology-oriented project on the Chicago transit system in conjunction with my partner Matt Meltzer, transit blogger extraordinaire, and
  • a dissertation on music education in Chicago
