Gillian Rodger
Department of Music
Fellow 2006-07

Gillian Rodger is Assistant Professor of Music at UWM. Her research considers the emergence of variety entertainment in America from 1850 to 1890, including the ways that this history reflects the social tensions between the moral reformers of America’s middle-class and working-class and ethnic populations they sought to influence through legislation and forms of direct intervention. Her articles have been published in journals such as Popular Music, American Music, and The Women’s Review of Books.
