Two UC Davis ethnomusicology grad students—Gillian Irwin (first year) and Sarah Messbauer (ABD)—share this year’s Marnie Dilling Prize, presented by the Northern California Chapter of the Society for Ethnomusicology for the best graduate student presentations at its annual chapter meeting, which was held on February 28, 2015, at UC Berkeley.

The Marnie Dilling Memorial Prize was established in 1998 as an award for the outstanding student paper presented at the Northern California Chapter of the SEM annual meeting. Marnie Dilling (d.1997) was a beloved colleague in the Ph.D. program at the University of California, Berkeley.

Sarah Messbauer’s paper was titled “We Are Who We Choose to Be: Conflicting Notions of Cultural Identity In Two Haitian-Canadian Music Festivals” and Gillian Irwin’s paper was titled “‘Microphone Republic’: Indonesian Broadcasting and National Music.”
