Wayne Marshall is the Florence Levy Kay Fellow in Ethnomusicology for 2007-09 and will be teaching courses through the Music and African/Afro-American Studies Departments. Specializing in the intersections between Caribbean and American popular music, he received his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007. His dissertation, Routes, Rap, Reggae: Hearing the Histories of Hip-hop and Reggae Together, examines the musical interplay between Jamaica and the US in the late twentieth century, following a particular set of melodic figures across several decades to illuminate the role that technology, migration, and mass media have played in the ongoing formation of hip-hop and reggae as (trans)national musics advancing an intertwined cultural politics of blackness.
