Dan Deutsch is currently an Azrieli postdoctoral fellow in the Musicology Department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto Faculty of Music and the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies. His dissertation, Music as “Minor Literature”: Form and Syntax in Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, examined the formal and stylistic features of Gustav Mahler’s music against the backdrop of his social status as part of a Jewish minority. In his current research, he expands the scope of his dissertation by focusing on the confluence of musical formations and socio-cultural experiences within the music of German-Jewish composers in the long nineteenth-century.
