Philip Bohlman‘s teaching and research draw upon diverse methods and perspectives in music scholarship to forge an ethnomusicology built upon foundations in ethnography, history, and performance. He is particularly interested in exploring the interstices between music and religion, music, race, and colonial encounter, and music and nationalism. He is a visiting professor at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater (Hannover). He received his doctorate from the University of Illinois in 1984 and has been teaching at Chicago since 1987.
