Alumnus Wins Guggenheim Fellowship

Alejandro L. Madrid (MM ’99) announced as a 2022 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in Music Research. He is Professor in the Department of Music at Cornell University where he is described as a “cultural theorist who specializes in music and expressive culture from Latin America and Latinxs in the United States. Working at the intersection of musicology, ethnomusicology, and performance studies, Madrid’s scholarship interrogates neoliberalism, globalization, and postmodernity while exploring questions of embodiment, affectivity, and politics in transnational settings."
