    Please join the Department of Anthropology and Sociology for a special Brown Bag lecture by Dr. Kristina Jacobson.

    Kristina Jacobsen holds a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Duke University, the MPhil in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University, a Master’s in Ethnomusicology from Arizona State University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Music (flute performance) and History (concentration: Native North America).

    Based on 2 ½ years of singing and playing with Navajo county western bands, her book, The Sound of Navajo Country: Music, Language and Dine Belonging (2017, University of North Carolina Press), examines cultural intimacy and generational nostalgia on the Navajo (Dine) Nation. This book is the first in a series, Critical Indigeneities, edited by J. K"ãhaulani Kauanui and Jean M. O’Brien and focusing on contemporary indigenous experience and critical theory. Her research interests include: music and language, anthropology of the voice, politics of authenticity, indigeneity and belonging, music of Native North America, Sardinia and the Appalachian mountains, race and musical genre, music as cultural performance, indigenous language revitalization and U.S. working class expressive cultures. Her latest ethnographic project focuses on American music, settler colonialism and Sardinian language politics on the Italian island of Sardinia.
