Alumna Hedy Law accepts tenure-track position at the University of British Columbia

Dear friends:

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Hedy Law has just accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Music at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Hedy earned her PhD at the University of Chicago in Music History and Theory (2007) after gaining a Master's degree at Oxford. From 2007-2009 she was Collegiate Assistant Professor and Harper-Schmidt Junior Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago, and since 2009 has been Assistant Professor of Music at the Southern Methodist University.

Hedy's PhD dissertation was on “Gestural Rhetoric: In Search of Pantomime in the French Enlightenment, ca. 1750-1785.” She was the recipient of the Howard Mayer Brown Fellowship of the American Musicological Society in 2005-2006, and the Whiting Dissertation Fellowship in 2006-2007, as well as a Tave Teaching Fellowship.

This is a great move for Hedy, and there is much excitement at UBC about her joining the faculty there. Please join me in offering her our heartiest congratulations!
