Emily Dolan Will Discuss ‘Instruments and Instrumentality’

Harvard University music professor Emily I. Dolan will present the lecture “Instruments and Instrumentality” at the University of New Orleans on Friday, March 6 at 2 p.m. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Performing Arts Center’s recital hall.

Dolan’s appearance is the first in a series of distinguished lectures in musicology at the University of New Orleans, according to Yotam Haber, assistant professor of music.

“Emily Dolan is one of the most extraordinary thinkers and speakers on music today,” Haber said. “Her innovative insights into intersections of technology, music and science will interest a wide audience, and we are truly excited to host her at UNO.”

Dolan is the Gardner Cowles Associate Professor of Music at Harvard. She previously was an associate professor of music at the University of Pennsylvania. She specializes in late Enlightenment and early Romantic music and aesthetics. In particular she focuses on issues of orchestration and instrumentality.

Dolan is the author of “The Orchestral Revolution: Haydn and the Technologies of Timbre.” She is working on her second book, “Instruments and Order.” She holds a doctorate from Cornell University.
