Jane Mathieu is an Assistant Professor of Music in the Newcomb Department of Music at Tulane University. Her research focuses on the intersections between American identity and the creation, performance, and consumption of music in the United States during twentieth century. She is currently at work on two large projects: a monograph on the many spaces, sounds, and contexts of American popular song at the turn of the twentieth century, and an examination of experimental music in New Orleans in the early 1960s. Mathieu has presented papers at annual meetings of the American Musicological Society (2014), Society for American Music (2014), and the US chapter of IASPM (2009, 2010).
