Dr. Christine Dysers is a Fulbright Visiting Scholar in the Department of Music, Columbia University. Her research is broadly concerned with 20th- and 21st-century music, with particular attention to contemporary composition and the aesthetics of repetition. Her research interests include music and the political, musical borrowing, and the notion of the uncanny. Methodologically, her work occupies the spaces between critical musicology, aesthetic theory, continental philosophy, and music analysis.
Christine holds a PhD in Music from City, University of London. She holds a PGCert in Academic Practice and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She also holds an MSc in Arts and Cultural Management from the University of Antwerp. Christine has published in several peer-reviewed journals and has presented her work internationally at academic conferences, panel discussions, and invited seminars. Her first monograph, on repetition in the work of Austrian composer Bernhard Lang, is currently under contract with Intellect Books.
