Jamie Blake is a PhD Candidate in Musicology. Her dissertation, “Architects of Russian America: Musical Networks in the Early Twentieth Century,” focuses on early Russian émigrés and visiting artists in the United States, the transnational and international networks they developed, and the impact these networks had on evolving American perceptions of Russian culture. Jamie’s research has been supported by the Association for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies, the Society for American Music, the American Musicological Society, and the Kennan Institute at the Wilson International Center for Scholars.
