About J. Martin Daughtry:

With research interests centering on sound studies and the intersection of music and politics, Martin Daughtry joined the [NYU] Department of Music as an Assistant Professor in 2007. He earned a B.A. in Russian Studies from New College of Florida (1994), and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology from UCLA (2001, 2006). Before coming to NYU, he taught at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Dr. Daughtry's recent research deals with sung poetry in the post-Stalinist Soviet Union; post-Soviet musical nationalism; and the sonic dimension of warfare. His work has been published in the journals Ethnomusicology (2003), Poetics Today (2009), Russian Literature (2010), and in Ethnomusicology: A Contemporary Reader (Routledge, 2007). In 2007, Music in the Post-9/11 World, which he coedited with Jonathan Ritter, was published by Routledge. Currently he is working on an ethnography of listening practices in conflict zones, centering on the experiences of US military personnel and Iraqi civilians in post-Hussein Baghdad.
