Andrea F. Bohlman (Associate Professor) studies music, sound, and politics. She has written about the history—and present—of music, protest movements, and political organizing. In these books and articles, she writes about symphonies, spoken poetry, electronic dance music, love ballads, and devotional music..along with chants, surveillance recordings, and more. Most of her research is on the social experience of sound and music in Eastern Europe, but she has also written about the United States and Germany in times of war. In her current research, she is writing about how sound recording fosters intimate social relationships, and how these relationships show listening to be a powerful way to navigate trust and recognized difference, especially in the context of gender, race, and ability.
