Aldwyn Hogg Jr.
Aldwyn is a fourth-year Ph.D. student from the Bahamas. He previously spent six years in Canada completing his B.A. Hons. in Music at the University of Guelph, and his M.A. in Musicology at Western University. His dissertation research will explore what black music can tell us about the dyad of race and technology during the early to mid-twentieth century in the United States of America. He intends to focus on 2 objects and 2 events: the washing machine, the automobile, the advent of nuclear weaponry during the Second World War, and the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Aldwyn is also very much interested in nightclubs and clubbing, both as a research interest and as a personal hobby. In fact, his recently completed M.A. thesis explored sound, affect, and community within queer nightclubs. Some of his other scholarly interests include: black spoken word poetry and oral performance in the Black Power era, aesthetic criticism, and Soviet Russian symphonies (once upon a time, he wanted to be a russianist!).
