Graduate Student (1st Year)

Aldwyn Hogg Jr. is a first-year graduate student. He is originally from the Bahamas, and has spent the past six years in Ontario, Canada completing his B.A. Hons. in Music at the University of Guelph and his M.A. in Musicology at Western University. His primary interests lie in the role musical institutions played in the mediation of socialist realism in Stalinist Russia, and the cultural significance and currency of soviet symphonies. Aldwyn also has a burgeoning interest in the use of soul and funk music during the Black Power era, and in the cultural politics of the Black Panthers.
