About the Author

Kirstie A. Dorr is Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California, San Diego.


"For Kirstie A. Dorr, geography is never a stable site or a fixed idea that merely marks the imagined place of musical production and circulation. Dorr's nuanced engagement between musical sound and geography shows geography to be the site and sound of the transnational and transgenerational. A rare work in Latina/o studies that concentrates on Andean and Afroperuvian music, On Site, In Sound is a unique sonic force that contributes critical questions pertaining to blackness and Latinidad in the field of Latina/o studies as well as a critical signpost for reimagining sound studies through sexuality, race, and gender."--Deborah R. Vargas, author of "Dissonant Divas in Chicana Music: The Limits of La Onda " "Boldly investigating the post-1960 rise of political and social economies of South American music that anticipated and responded to the past, present, and future of colonial discipline, Kirstie A. Dorr works with populations that are too often left out of the narratives of hemispheric cultural activism. Dorr's interventions are necessary and provocative, making On Site, In Sound a crucial and vivifying touchstone for the future horizon of U.S. Latina/o studies."--Alexandra T. Vazquez, author of "Listening in Detail: Performances of Cuban Music "
