Welcome to Janet Sturman's
Virtual Office and Home Page

The picture on the left shows my real office at the School of Music at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I have taught since 1995. 

For sample syllabi and information on the courses I have taught or am currently teaching, click on “Teaching” in the menu bar at the top of this page.

Clicking on “Publication” will link you to information on my book, Zarzuela: Spanish Operetta, American Stage (U. Illinois Press, 2000), as well as to other articles and material I have written or edited. 

“Research” offers links not only to my individual research but also to work on which I am collaborating with students and colleagues, including the Guide to World of Music and Dance in Tucson Arizona (2000-2005) and ongoing work at the UA Center for Latin American Music.   

“Service” includes links to programs on campus where my work as a specialist in the relationship between music and culture has proven valuable, such as Latin American Studies, International Studies, and the Summer Research Institute. 

Ethnomusicology, the study of music in culture, is my primary discipline. Clicking on that link above will provide you with information concerning opportunities for studying ethnomusicology at the University of Arizona, and will direct you to useful links in the field, including the home site of the Society for Ethnomusicology, the professional society (for which I am currently serving as Secretary on the Board of Directors) as well as the homepage that I maintain for the Southwest Regional Chapter for the Society for Ethnomusicology.

“Other Links” is a hodge-podge of useful sites, arranged, as much as possible, by category of potential use.

“About Me,” supplies a brief biographical summary, and links to a full curriculum vitae as well as a selection of photos of my family, students, and collaborators.
