Malin Author of Songs in Motion

Book by Yonatan Malin

Yonatan Malin, assistant professor of music, is the author of the book Songs in Motion: Rhythm and Meter in the German Lied, published by Oxford University Press in May 2010.

This book explores rhythm and meter in the 19th-century German Lied, including songs for voice and piano by Fanny Hensel née Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Hugo Wolf.

The Lied, as a genre, is characterized especially by the fusion of poetry and music. Poetic meter itself has expressive qualities, and rhythmic variations contribute further to the modes of signification. .

Price Author of Dreaming Blackness

Book by Melanye Price.

Book by Melanye Price.

Melanye Price, adjunct associate professor of government, coordinator of internships, is the author of the book Dreaming Blackness: Black Nationalism and African American Public Opinion, published by New York University Press in 2009.

In Dreaming Blackness, Price explores the current understandings of Black Nationalism among African Americans, providing a balanced and critical view of today’s black political agenda. She argues that Black Nationalism continues to enjoy moderate levels of support by most black citizens but has a more difficult time gaining a larger stronghold because of increasing diversity among blacks and a growing emphasis on individualism over collective struggle. She shows that black interests are a dynamic negotiation among various interested groups and suggests that those differences are not just important for the “black agenda” but also for how African Americans think and dialogue about black political questions daily.
