Siriana is a third year PhD student in musicology at Harvard. Her research focuses on intersectional feminist critique of people and communities musicking throughout the American West in the late 19th century. Recent projects have included work on the structures of power that surround musicking in the red-light districts of Rocky Mountain mining towns. She holds a BM in Vocal Performance and Gender Studies from St. Olaf College, which mostly means that she just loves to sing. But, when she’s not singing, she can likely be found watching Star Wars.
