Virginia Georgallas

Virginia Georgallas is a PhD Candidate in Musicology. She holds an Associate Diploma in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and she completed a BMus in Piano Performance and an MA in Musicology at the University of Toronto. Her dissertation proposes an alternative approach to the philosophical aporias and political challenges presented by musical style, beginning with a return to eighteenth-century conceptions of style that had yet to congeal into the institutionalized hierarchies and racialized schemas of nineteenth-century disciplinarity. Her research has been supported by doctoral fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Townsend Center for the Humanities. In 2023 she was awarded the Alvin H. Johnson AMS 50 Dissertation Fellowship. Virginia is currently the Editorial Assistant at Representations.
