Jacqueline Georgis is a fourth-year doctoral student of ethnomusicology within the Department of Music. Her work explores ideas of cultural hybridity and transnational exchange within the Lusophone-Atlantic. She is particularly interested in researching these themes through the lens of contemporary Angolan and Cape Verdean inspired electronic dance music in Lisbon, Portugal, asking how these music genres challenge current neo-colonial sociocultural and political configurations of the Lusophone world. Jacqueline will be heading to Lisbon in Spring 2019 to conduct dissertation field research. Before coming to Yale, Jacqueline received her B.M. in cello performance from the School of Music, Ithaca College (2013), and continued cello performance study at the École Normale de Musique de Paris, Alfred Cortot (2013-2015) in Paris, France.
