Kirsten Paige: Richard Wagner as Ecocritic
Kirsten Paige: Richard Wagner as Ecocritic:

Kirsten Paige is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Musicology at North Carolina State University. She was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow in Music at Stanford University and earned her Ph.D. in Music History from UC Berkeley in 2018. Kirsten´s work asks how forms of scientific knowledge shaped musical practices and aural cultures in the long nineteenth century, with a special focus on global cultural and scientific exchanges. Her first book, Richard Wagner's Political Ecology (under contract, University of Chicago Press), explores the influence of nineteenth-century environmental and climatic theories on Wagner's artistic and political regimes of knowledge. Her work has also appeared in The Cambridge Opera Journal, Opera Quartely, 19th-Century Music, and the journal of the Royal Musical Association.
