Margaret Rowley is a PhD student in ethnomusicology at Boston University, where she works variously on music and gender, nationalism, and torture. Her academic influences come from a broadening array of disciplines, including anthropology, philosophy, and sociology; she is a passionate, if concerned, advocate for the humanities in higher education.
Prior to her time at Boston University, she completed degrees in flute performance and ethnomusicology at Missouri State University and Michigan State University, followed by a long period of working in arts administration and wondering what to do next.
Margaret will be writing for EA on ethnomusicology, politics, and whatever else she feels like. We are thrilled to have her on board!
