Siriana Lundgren


Siriana’s research focuses on intersectional feminist critique of people and communities musicking throughout the American West in the late 19th century. Recent projects have included work on the structures of power that surround musicking in the red-light districts of Rocky Mountain mining towns. Siriana is also dedicated to public scholarship and has curated a digital exhibit on the music of the American west, produced podcasts about women composers, and written radio features for YourClassical on women’s history month.

Siriana is currently developing a secondary interest in music, the internet, and capitalism, with special emphasis on TikTok and music streaming platforms’ exploitation of girls along raced and classed axes of power. She holds a B.M. in Vocal Performance and Gender Studies from St. Olaf College, which mostly means that she just loves to sing. But, when she’s not singing, she can likely be found watching Star Trek.
