Alejandro L. Madrid (PhD, Ohio State) is a cultural theorist and music scholar whose research focuses on the intersection of modernity, tradition, globalization, and ethnic identity in popular and art music, dance, and expressive culture from Mexico, the U.S.-Mexico border, and the circum-Caribbean. His interests range from the performance of democratic values through music, media, and technology, to questions of continuity, change, cosmopolitanism, and race in Latin American 19th-century and early 20th-century music, to transnationalism and embodied culture in contemporary electronic dance music.
