Musicologist Tim Carter's diverse interests include everything from Renaissance Italy to Mozart’s operas to American musical theater in the mid-20th century. He is particularly concerned with developing critical tools to deal with problematic, transitional works that forge new musical languages. He has held fellowships at the Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, the Newberry Library in Chicago, and the National Humanities Center. Carter has also occupied various positions within the Royal Musical Association, the American Musicological Society, and the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music. In 2013 he received the Claude V. Palisca Award and the H. Colin Slim Award from the American Musicological Society for his work on Kurt Weill’s Johnny Johnson and on Monteverdi. Having taught extensively in the U.K., he is currently David G. Frey Distinguished Professor of Music at UNC-Chapel Hill.
