Join Dr Alisha Lola Jones as she discusses the ways in which we can connect our listening practices to our everyday experiences in the world beyond the stage. In what ways might we hear each other that can lead to both liberation and amplification in the current socio-cultural and political soundscape?

Speaker

Dr Alisha Lola Jones

Alisha Lola Jones

Dr. Alisha Lola Jones is an associate professor in the faculty of music at the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. She is a board member of the Society for Ethnomusicology (SEM), a member of the strategic planning task force for the American Musicological Society (AMS), and a co-chair of the Music and Religion Section of the American Academy of Religion (AAR). Additionally, as a performer-scholar, she consults museums, conservatories, seminaries, and arts organizations on curriculum, live and virtual event programming, and content development. Dr. Jones’ book Flaming?: The Peculiar Theopolitics of Fire and Desire in Black Male Gospel Performance (Oxford University Press) breaks ground by analyzing the role of gospel music-making in constructing and renegotiating gender identity among black men. Dr. Jones' book has been awarded: the Ruth Stone prize (SEM), Music in American Culture prize (AMS), and Philip Brett prize (AMS). She is completing two books: a gastromusicology book entitled Ultrasonic Tastemakers: A Critical Gastromusicology and Sound Our Signatures: A Womanist Approach to Music Research, which sets forth anti-oppressive ways of listening to Black women. Recently, she wrote albums notes for the GRAMMY nominated record by Carlos Simon entitled Requiem for the Enslaved (2022). Rev. Dr. Jones is a fourth-generation ordained preacher on both sides in the Word of Faith and Pentecostal traditions. A little-known fact is that Dr. Alisha Lola Jones and her sister Rev. Angela Marie Jones are co-owners of Paradise Media Group, a Black women-owned radio company with stations based in Oxford and Henderson, NC. Rev. Dr. Jones is bicontinental residing in the US and Cambridge, England with her life-partner in ministry and love, her husband Rev. Calvin Taylor Skinner.
