Grad Student Timiesha Knowles Wins Grant
Graduate Student Timiesha Knowles has been selected by the American Musicological Society as a recipient of a travel grant from the organization's Eileen Southern Travel Fund. Administered by the society's Committee on Cultural Diversity, the fund helps graduate students offset the costs of attending the annual AMS conference, which this year will be held in New Orleans in November. In so doing, the society not only enhances the diversity of conference attendees but also engages and promotes the voices of graduate students from historically underrepresented communities. Ms. Knowles, who is pursuing a Master of Music degree with a concentration in vocal performance, has conducted scholarly research on the links between Jamaican popular music and political and sexual ideologies in the country. Congratulations, Timiesha!
