Ken McLeod taught at M.I.T.’s School of Music and Theatre Arts and Belmont University (Nashville, TN) before his appointment to the University of Toronto in July 2007.  His research and publishing activities address the study of gendered and racial narratives of national identity in 17th- and 18th-century English theatre music, including representations of Amazons and warrior queens in the music of Handel and Purcell.  He has also published on identity politics in popular music, Chaos theory, the appropriation of classical music by disco and electronica, and the intersections between science fiction and rock music.  Recent publications include articles in Popular Music, Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music, American Music, College Music Symposium and Popular Music and Society.  He is currently preparing a monograph on the inter-relationship between sports and popular music.
