    My research focuses on musical Anglo-Saxonism and the interactions between American and British musical nationalism at the turn of the twentieth century. In particular, I am interested in how themes of individualism and racial identity emerged from shared anti-Germanic and anti-modernist outlooks. My dissertation, currently in progress, approaches these issues from the perspective of composers associated with the Second New England School, primarily Edward MacDowell and Horatio Parker. My master’s thesis looked at American composer Harry T. Burleigh’s secular music during the World War I era.
