Scott A. Carter (Ph.D.'14, Ethnomusicology), assistant director of the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture, recently won the Irving Lowens Award from the Society for American Music.

The award honors an article published in the previous year that makes an outstanding contribution to the study of American music.

The winning article, "Forging a Sound Citizenry: Voice Culture and the Embodiment of the Nation, 1880-1920," was published in the American Music Research Center Journal in 2013.

Carter's research focuses on the ideological formation and performance of race in U.S. vernacular musics.
