    Santiago’s research interests include American and African American popular music, 20th Century American music, music in society, race theory and feminist theory in music. Santiago is interested in the political and social commentaries utilized by Black musicians and their reception by mainstream audiences, with one example being the music of Parliament Funkadelic in the 1970s Black Power movement. She is also interested in feminism in unconventional music spaces such as the orchestra and the church.
