Stephanie Doktor

Graduate Student Associate
Stephanie is a Ph.D. candidate in the Music Department. Her dissertation revives a history of the concert jazz vogue in 1920s modernist compositions. An emphasis on both black and white transnational American composers enables her to examine the sonic materialization of U.S. race relations and international racial ideologies through the creation and reception of this style. Stephanie has taught in higher education for eight years. Her favorite course objectives implore students to listen to the sounds of race, gender, and class in twentieth century musics of the United States. She especially loves to teach non-majors and undergrads to develop critical listening skills and historical perspectives on music. She loves her two boxer dogs, Copeland and Vera. She also loves drinking craft beer and growing succulents.
