Professor and Musicologist Jack Sullivan on “New Orleans Remix”

Monday, Dec 4, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Since the 1990s, New Orleans has been experiencing its greatest musical renaissance since Louis Armstrong. Brass band, funk, hip hop, Mardi Gras Indian, zydeco, and other styles are rocking the city in new neighborhood bars far from the Bourbon Street tourist scene. In New Orleans Remix, Jack Sullivan shines the light on superb artists little known to the general public, and he introduces a surge of female, Asian and other previously marginalized groups that are making the vibe more inclusive than ever.

Dr. Sullivan's specialties include 18th- and 20th-century American literature, music and film. He has published six books and has written for Opera, The New York Times, Washington Post, Newsday and USA Today. He teaches a variety of subjects, including several in the American Studies Program, which he chairs. An advocate of an active Emersonian education, Dr. Sullivan frequently takes students to plays and other cultural events in New York City, where he lives with his wife and two children.
