Susan Thomas

Prior to coming to the University of Colorado, Susan Thomas was at the University of Georgia, where she was professor of musicology and women’s studies. At UGA, she co-directed the Athens Music Project, a research, curriculum and outreach initiative that explores the multiple music histories for which the Athens region is renowned. Her own research focuses on Cuban and Latin American music, with particular attention to musical manifestations of and reactions to transnationalism, migration and diaspora as well as the musical intersections of gender, race, embodiment and performativity. Her book, "Cuban Zarzuela: Performing Race and Gender on Havana's Lyric Stage" was awarded the Robert M. Stevenson Prize and the Pauline Alderman Book Award. Thomas has been the recipient of a number of grants and fellowship, including year-long residencies in the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University. The author of numerous articles and book contributions, she is currently completing her second book, "The Musical Mangrove: The Transnationalization of Cuban Alternative Music," for Oxford University Press.
