2020 Hettleman Talks
The Hettleman Talks are TEDX-style presentations from the 2020 winners of the Phillip and Ruth Hettleman Prizes for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement, one of the most distinguished awards our early-career faculty can receive. This year’s talks will provide an engaging look into these distinguished young scholars’ work in the fields of computer science, music, urology and history.

Associate professor in the Department of Music within the College of Arts & Sciences
Andrea Bohlman is an associate professor in the UNC Department of Music and a recipient of the 2020 Hettleman Award for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement. Her scholarship resides in the still relatively young academic field of sound studies. She integrates her research with work in media studies, music and cultural studies, Eastern European politics, anthropology, Slavic studies and sociology. She is recognized nationally and internationally for her keen ability to weave diverse approaches and points of focus — ranging from on-the-street experience to global politics, and from the underground exchange of mixtapes to the negotiations of cultural capital in art music — into writings of nuance and power.
