Lise Waxer Prize awarded to recent PhD Luis-Manuel Garcia

Dear friends and colleagues:

I’m delighted to announce that recent PhD Luis-Manuel Garcia was just awarded the Lise Waxer Prize, which recognizes “the most distinguished student paper in the ethnomusicology of popular music” (awarded by the Popular Music Section of the Society for Ethnomusicology). The prize was for Luis’s 2010 paper, presented at the SEM meeting in Los Angeles, entitled, “Liquid Solidarities: Vague Belonging at Electronic Dance Music Events in Paris, Chicago, and Berlin.”

We’re proud and thrilled by this news!
