New Editorial Board Members

The Journal of Jazz Studies is pleased to welcome Stephanie Doktor, Darren Mueller, and Nichole Rustin-Paschal to our editoral board.

Stephanie Doktor is Assistant Professor of Music Theory at Temple University, and her research and teaching ask, “How can we hear inequality?” Her current book project, Reinventing Whiteness: Race in the Early Jazz Marketplace (under contract with University of California Press), evaluates the role of white supremacy in the unprecedented success of 1920s Black dance music. Doktor’s research has appeared in the Journal of the Society for American Music, Jazz & Culture, and American Music. She has forthcoming articles in the Oxford Handbook of Arrangement Studies and Journal of the American Musicological Society.   Darren Mueller is Assistant Professor of Musicology at the Eastman School of Music. His research interrogates how technologies of sound alter the development of musical styles and the means by which music making enables cultural agency. These interests animate his research on the history of the jazz album, the political aurality of black music in the United States, as well as his collaborative work in the digital humanities exploring new forms of multimodal scholarship. He is the author of the forthcoming book At the Vanguard of Vinyl: A Cultural History of the Long-Playing Record in Jazz and a co-editor of Digital Sound Studies.   Nichole Rustin-Paschal earned a Ph.D. in American Studies from New York University and a J.D. from the University of Virginia. She is an Assistant Professor and Social Equity & Inclusion Fellow at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her book,The Kind of Man I Am: Jazzmasculinity and the World of Charles Mingus Jr.,(Wesleyan 2017) explores the life and career of Charles Mingus through a cultural history of jazz, race, and gender in the postwar period. Nichole is co-editor of >Big Ears: Listening for Gender in Jazz Studies (Duke 2008), the first anthology of work in jazz and gender studies. She is co-editor ofThe Routledge Companion to Jazz Studies (Routledge 2019), an anthology of cross-disciplinary and transnational studies in jazz.
