As Assistant Editor Rebecca Lentjes works primarily with ethno/musicological publications in French, Italian, and Romanian, as well as music-related scholarship in the fields of American studies, gender studies, sound studies, and anthropology.
Lentjes is a feminist activist ethnomusicologist writing about gendered sonic violence in the United States, focusing her ethnography and research primarily on anti-abortion protests as an extreme example of what she terms “sonic patriarchy”. She earned an MA in ethnomusicology from Stony Brook University, where her studies were funded by a Graduate Council Fellowship. She received her undergraduate degree in music and Romance languages from New York University, where her studies were funded by an Elizabeth Claster memorial scholarship among others. Lentjes writings have been published or are forthcoming in Resonance: The Journal of Sound & Culture, TEMPO: A Quarterly Review of New Music, The Journal of Interdisciplinary Voice Studies, Sounding Out!, Music & Literature, and VAN Magazine; her work has been presented at the American Musicological Society, American Studies Association, and Society for American Music, among others. She volunteers regularly at an abortion clinic and for an abortion fund.
