Bibiana Vergine received her Ph.D. in Musicology from Princeton University in 2016, and her M.M. in Musicology, B.M. in Piano Performance and B.A. in Liberal Arts Plan II from the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on medieval hymns in southern Italy, examining how their transmission in extant manuscripts reflects the dynamics of power, religious interests, and political concerns of the region in the late middle ages. Dr. Vergine has published peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on her research, and her dissertation received a grant from the Medieval Academy of America. She is experienced in archival work, having conducted research at the Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli, the Archivio Capitolare of Benevento, and in the Archivio Capitolare of the cathedral of San Pelino in Sulmona, Italy. Dr. Vergine has also played violin in early music ensembles.
