Yayoi Uno Everett will offer a Class of 1960 talk open to all on Opera in Flux: Posthumanism, Dramaturgy, Subjectivity.

Yayoi Uno Everett is a native of Yokohama, Japan, and is on the faculty at City University of New York at Hunter College and the Graduate Center. She has previously taught at University of Illinois at Chicago, Emory University (2000-14), University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana (1999-2000), and the University of Colorado at Boulder (1994-98).

Her research focuses on the analysis of postwar art music, film, and opera from the perspectives of semiotics, narratology, multimedia theories, cultural studies, and East Asian aesthetics. Her publications include monographs called Reconfiguring Myth and Narrative in Contemporary Operas (Indiana University Press, 2015) and The Music of Louis Andriessen (Cambridge University Press, 2006), a co-edited volume Locating East Asia in Western Music, and various peer-reviewed articles on music by Kaija Saariaho, John Adams, Thomas Adeès, Charles Wuorinen, Louis Andriessen, György Ligeti, Elliott Carter, Toru Takemitsu, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Chou-Wen Chung, Lei Liang, Kyong Mee Choi, and Unsuk Chin.

Since 2016, she has given invited lectures at Northwestern University, UW Madison, University of South Carolina, University of Miami, UNC Greensboro, McGill University, and University of Michigan, and delivered plenary and keynote addresses at regional and national conferences of Society for Music Theory. She has served on PhD dissertation committees at University of Helsinki, Northwestern University, and Temple University, and guest taught a graduate seminar on Topic Theory and Intertextuality at University of Chicago (2016).

She is currently co-editing a collection of essays entitled Opera in Flux: Staging, Narrative, Identity (provisional title) under contract with University of Michigan Press.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
