Maureen Carr

Distinguished Professor of Music Maureen Carr was presented with the Ruth A. Solie Award at the 2018 meeting of the American Musicological Society in San Antonio, Texas, for a book titled The Rite of Spring at 100 (Indiana University Press, 2017). The award citation read: "This book of essays applies multidisciplinary approaches to ongoing questions about a central work by Stravinsky. The contributors include an international group of authors drawn from dance and theater specialists, musicologists, and music theorists. They address controversies regarding the genesis and reception of the work, including issues such as: modernism and primitivism, immigration and xenophobia, as well as nationalism and racism. The editors [Maureen Carr, Severine Neff, Professor Emerita of Music at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Gretchen Horlacher, Professor of Music at Indiana University] played a strong role by organizing international conferences that generated essays for the volume, by fostering dialogue among the authors, and by arranging for inclusion of video and audio clips.
