Welcome Assistant Professor Michael Gallope!

Michael Gallope joined the CSCL faculty in the fall of 2013. He is a musicologist with expertise in philosophy and critical theory, as well as the comparative analysis of image, word, and sound. His current book manuscript is entitled "Deep Refrains: Sound and Music Beyond the Linguistic Turn" and narrates an intellectual history of music through the work of Bloch, Adorno, Jankélévitch, and Deleuze. His future research will explore how vernacular practices of musical modernism aspire to the form of philosophy. Before coming to Minnesota, he taught at the University of Chicago where he was a member of the Society of Fellows, and at NYU, where he completed his Ph.D. in Historical Musicology.
