Biography

 

 dr. Kasper van Kooten (1983) studied Musicology, Art Studies and Music Theory at the University of Amsterdam, the Freie Universität Berlin and the Conservatory of Amsterdam. He defended his PhD called "Was deutsch und echt... Articulating a German Operatic Identity, 1798-1876" in 2016. He graduated (with distinction) in 2011 with a master's thesis on Richard Wagner's music-theatrical iconoclasm, awarded in 2012 with the Marten Lürsen-Prize for best music-theoretical master's thesis in the Netherlands and Flanders. He has published on the operas of Richard Wagner and Giacomo Puccini and the relation between music and national identity formation in the long nineteenth century.

He currently works as a postdoctoral research fellow within the KNAW-funded research project "National Identity; Cultural Transfer; Nineteenth-Century Music", entailing conference organisation and the preparation of the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe (Amsterdam UP).
