UC Davis Grad Student Published in Asian Music Journal
Graduate student David Dennen’s article “The Third Stream: Odisi Music, Regional Nationalism, and the Concept of ‘Classical’” was published in the scholarly journal Asian Music (volume 41, number 2, 2010, pp. 149-179). Dennen is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Music’s program in ethnomusicology; it is unusual for a student so early in his graduate career to have his research published in such a prestigious journal.
Dennen wrote the first draft of the article as his senior thesis at Evergreen State College in Washington, and he has continued to extend and refine his analysis of the discourse of “classical” music in India while pursuing studies in ethnomusicology at UC Davis.
