Share This:

Larry Blumenfeld, cultural journalist, music critic and longtime contributor to The Wall Street Journal, will serve as the 2019 Jeanette K. Watson Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities at Syracuse University from March 25 to April 5.

His residency, titled “Jazz in Troubled Times: The Relevance and Resonance of a Culture,” will explore the convergence of politics, activism, and the arts, while rethinking the nature of jazz as an enduring culture.

During his time on campus, Blumenfeld will headline scholarly and artistic events, drawing on his extensive fieldwork in New York City, New Orleans, and Havana. The schedule includes public discussions with performances by saxophonist Yosvany Terry and his quartet (March 29) and pianist Jason Moran (April 5), as well as a listening party co-curated by bassist Linda May Han Oh. (April 4).
