As Associate Executive Editor, Tina Frühauf is responsible for acquiring the content for RILM’s newest projects; she also plans and oversees marketing activities. As editor she is involved in the German editorial work of RILM. Dr. Frühauf teaches at Columbia University and is on the doctoral faculty of The Graduate Center, The City University of New York.

An active scholar and writer, Frühauf’s research is centered on music and Jewish studies, especially in religious contexts but also art music, historiography, and Jewish community (through participatory action research), often crossing the methodological boundaries between ethnomusicology and historical musicology. She has received most recently fellowships and grants from the American Musicological Society, the Leo Baeck Institute, and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.

Dr. Frühauf has written widely about the German Jewish music culture; aside from book chapters and encyclopedia articles, her work appeared in The Musical Quarterly, Musica Judaica, and TDR: The Drama Review. She is the author of The Organ and Its Music in German-Jewish Culture (Oxford University Press, 2009/2012; also available in German through G. Olms); editor of An Anthology of German-Jewish Organ Music, Hans Samuel: Selected Piano Works (A-R Editions, 2013), and Dislocated Memories: Jews, Music, and Postwar German Culture (Oxford University Press, 2014)), which won the Ruth A. Solie Award. She has written several books for a general readership. Experiencing Jewish Music in America: A Listener’s Companion is schedule to be published in 2018 by Rowman & Littlefield. Dr. Frühauf is currently completing a comprehensive monograph on music in the Jewish communities of Germany after 1945. She has organized the 2015 conference Postmodernity’s Musical Pasts: Rediscoveries and Revivals after 1945, hosted by The Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation, to venture into new areas of musicological inquiry. An edited volume is in preparation.
