Lecturer in Ethnomusicology

Charrise Barron is an ISM graduate (M.Div. ’10) who will receive her Ph.D. in African and African American studies, with a secondary concentration in music, from Harvard University in May 2017. At Yale, she will expand her interdisciplinary research of a recent period in black American gospel music which she has named “The Platinum Age of Gospel.” This period, roughly spanning 1993-2013, saw marked shifts away from previous eras of gospel performance and culture. Using ethnographic and historical methodologies, this critical examination of gospel’s Platinum Age will illuminate revised theologies of sanctification among African American Pentecostal churches.
