His research and teaching interests include musical historiography, feminist/queer theory (he is associate of the Center for Women's Studies at UT,) and cultural studies; his recent work has included investigations of contemporary popular music and the fashioning of a postmodern critical stance, resulting in his editing and contributing to the collection of essays Beyond Structural Listening? Postmodern Modes of Hearing (University of California Press, 2004).
