Maria Cizmic is Associate Professor and Graduate Advisor of Humanities and Cultural Studies at the University of South Florida. She completed her PhD in Musicology in 2004 at the University of California, Los Angeles where she was a Jacob K. Javitz fellow. She currently teaches interdisciplinary courses that integrate musicology and the humanities, including her survey of twentieth-century European culture (HUM 2250) and Representing Trauma (HUM 4824). Oxford University Press recently published her first monograph, Performing Pain: Music and Trauma in Eastern Europe, which considers the ways in which music interacts with representations of pain, trauma, and memory.
