UHM Ethnomusicology Students Making Waves

In Ethnomusicology, Student Accolades by Travis Shaver

Current students of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s ethnomusicology program are making strides in the field. Here are a few of their remarkable accomplishments: Ethnomusicology PhD student Candi Steiner has been appointed as the Managing Editor for the University’s Center for Pacific Islands Studies. This position places her as the editor of multiple monographs in the very highly regarded Pacific Islands Manuscript series as well as the editor of the award-winning journal The Contemporary Pacific. The department would like to congratulate and wish good luck to this young Pacific scholar in her new highly respected and internationally recognized position.

Another congratulations goes out to Andrew Gumataotao, a first-year ethnomusicology MA student who was recently accepted to present his research on protest music of Guam at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The graduate conference on international history titled “Militarization: Methods, Approaches, & New Dimensions” will take place on March 28 and 29.
