David Trippett‘s research focuses on nineteenth-century intellectual history, Richard Wagner, and the philosophy of technology. Other interests include Franz Liszt and post-Classical Weimar, performance theory and the grey area between improvisation and composition, as well as posthumanism and musical creativity in the digital age. Following an edited translation of Carl Stumpf’s The Origins of Music (OUP 2012), his first monograph, Wagner’s Melodies (CUP 2013), examines the cultural and scientific history of melodic theory in relation to Wagner’s writings and music. Other publications include editions and translations, as well as research and review articles, and some media work.

This event was organized by Whitney Laemmli and is sponsored by Society of Fellows in the Humanities.
