Julia Kursell is professor and chair of the Institute of Musicology at the University of Amsterdam. She studied musicology, Slavic philology and comparative literature in Munich, Moscow and Los Angeles, and completed her doctoral studies at Munich University with a thesis on music in the early Russian Avant-Garde. Before coming to Amsterdam, she was assistant professor at the Slavic Department of Munich University, and research fellow at the Center for Literary and Cultural Studies, Berlin. From 2004 to 2011 she worked as research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, where she was a member of the research group “Experimentalization of Life”. In 2013, she received the Habilitation (professorial degree) in musicology and history of science from Technical University, Berlin, for the thesis “Ohr und Instrument: Zu Hermann von Helmholtz’ physiologischer Grundlegung der Musiktheorie”. Her research interests include 20th and 21st-century composition, the history of musicology and the relation between music and science. Currently, she is working on a book project on tacit knowledge in musicology.
