Spelman Faculty Lauren Eldridge
Lauren Eldridge, Ph.D., a senior programs coordinator at UNCF Mellon Programs, has been published in Music and Politics, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal.

Her article, "Pedagogical Community: Music Education as Social Movement," explores how three distinct contemporary sites deploy an activism of aesthetics through establishing pedagogical communities of music, networks that coalesce around the aims of teaching and learning as liberatory practice. The faculty of the Musical Arts Institute, unnamed protestors at a rally, and members of the Morehouse College Glee Club might initially seem unconnected, but they are related through their common use of music as an expressive force, imbued with the power to overcome structural and ideological barriers.
