Edgardo Salinas

Edgardo Salinas received his PhD in Historical Musicology from Columbia University. A native of Argentina, his research explores the highly mediated relationships between musical practice, literary theory, and philosophical critique that developed within the network of material conditions coalescing around 1800 in the modern West. He has received awards from the Fulbright Program, the DAAD, the Whiting  Foundation, and the ACLS. His current book project traces socio-historical connections between the literary critique of Jena romanticism and the new paradigms for musical form and subjective experience that emerge in Beethoven's early piano sonatas.
