About

I am an ethnomusicologist whose work is focused on the creativity of Azerbaijani mugham. Currently, I am teaching ethnomusicology and musicology courses at Waseda University and completing my first book manuscript which is based on my PhD dissertation at the University of Toronto (2017) and postdoctoral research at Harvard University (2018-2021).

About

I am an ethnomusicologist and a performer of Azerbaijani mugham. Currently, I hold a SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University’s Department of Music, where I am in the process of completing and editing my manuscript, titled “Phenomenology of The Musical Beyond: Mugham Creativity, Imagination, and Affect in Post-Soviet Azerbaijan.” In my research, I rely on theoretical frameworks from phenomenology and affect theory to investigate the creativity of Azerbaijani mugham as a realm of emerging post-Soviet identities.
