Alexander W. Cowan is a graduate student in historical musicology at Harvard, working at the intersection of race, music, and politics. His dissertation draws on original archival research and new readings of published scientific texts to explore the unlikely and pernicious role of music in the UK and US eugenics movements in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
