Julianne Lindberg is currently an assistant professor of musicology in the Department of Music. Her research interests include music in Europe and the U.S. at the turn of the 20th century, and the intersections between gender, ethnicity, class, and children’s culture. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in musicology from UCLA, with a dissertation that explored the “childlike” in French music at the fin de siècle, particularly the work of Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, and Satie. Her secondary research interests include musical and cultural hybridity, specifically in Mexican and Mexican-American musics. Her most current project investigates the musically and culturally hybrid works of Mexican-American vocalist Lila Downs and Costa Rican-Mexican ranchera legend Chavela Vargas. Her scholarly work has been presented both nationally and internationally.
Dr. Lindberg is also an avid and experienced clarinetist. She performs frequently with the Reno Philharmonic and Nevada Opera, and maintains a private studio of students.
