Lise Waxer and Hewitt Pantaleoni prizes

A couple of papers I presented in 2008 received prizes this fall:

The 2009 Lise Waxer Prize from the Popular Music Section of the Society for Ethnomusicology, recognizing the most distinguished student paper in the ethnomusicology of popular music presented at the SEM annual meeting in Wesleyan, CT, October 2008, for my paper, “Media Consumption as Social Organization at a New England Primary School” (pdf or scribd).


The 2009 Hewitt Pantaleoni Prize from the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Society for Ethnomusicology (MACSEM) for the best student paper presented at the Middle Atlantic SEM Chapter meeting in New York, March 2008, for my paper, “The Social Economy of Headphone Use in a New England Primary School.” That paper turned into my “Earbuds Are Good for Sharing” for the Oxford Handbook of Mobile Music.

Needless to say I’m pleased and grateful.
