Dean Judd Scores Society for Music Theory Keynote

Cristle Collins Judd

Cristle Collins Judd, Bowdoin’s dean for academic affairs and a professor of music, presented the keynote address of the plenary session at the annual meeting of the Society for Music Theory (SMT) in Minneapolis October 29, 2011.

With a membership of more than 1,200 music theorists worldwide, the SMT was established to promote the discipline of music theory and to provide forums for the presentation of research through its annual meeting and flagship journal, Music Theory Spectrum.

In introducing Judd, Scott Burnham, Scheide Professor of Music at Princeton University, described her as “one of a small handful of scholars who are pursuing the study of renaissance music and of historical music theories in a genuinely new way.”

Judd has twice before been honored by the SMT, receiving the society’s Emerging Scholar Award (for the best article by a scholar in the early stages of his or her career) in 1999 and its Wallace Berry Award (for the most distinguished book on a music-theoretical topic) in 2001.
