Carrie Danielson, Visiting Assistant Professor of Musicology, holds the M.M. and Ph.D. in Musicology from Florida State University and the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Theory, History, and Composition from Brown University. Her research interests lie at the intersections of children’s musical cultures, forced migration, cultural policy, applied ethnomusicology, and Nordic studies. Danielson’s current research explores Sweden’s historically democratic music-and-arts schools, or kulturskolor, and how these institutions act as sites for cultural friction, transfer, and exchange for newly arrived and unaccompanied children and young people from Syria and Afghanistan.

Dr. Danielson is a recipient of the 2018 Elizabeth May Slater Prize of the Society for Ethnomusicology’s Education Section, the 2018 Presser Graduate Music Award, and a 2019 Florida State University International Dissertation Semester Research Fellowship. She has presented her work at regional, national, and international conferences in the disciplines of musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, Scandinavian studies, and children’s history and has forthcoming book chapters in The Oxford Handbook of Early Childhood Music Learning and Development and a Nordic volume titled Kulturskolen som inkluderende kraft i lokalsamfunnet [The kulturskola as an inclusive force in the local community].

Danielson is an active member of the Society for Ethnomusicology, the American Musicological Society, and the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study.
