Timothy L. Jackson, Ph.D

Timothy L. Jackson, Ph.D., is Professor of Music Theory and Distinguished University Research Professor at the University of North Texas’ College of Music. His primary interests center on the music of the eighteenth through twentieth centuries, Schenkerian theory, and politics and music. He has published on a wide range of topics, especially on theories of form and large-scale tonal structure, in a broad array of academic journals and books. He teaches courses on music theory and the politics of classical music, and has actively directed the “Lost Composers” Project, which seeks to revive the music and theoretical work of composers eclipsed or lost as a result of the Holocaust or Nazi-era cultural policies. From 2004 until 2020, he published The Journal of Schenkerian Studies until he was subjected to a massive cancellation attack for his defense of Austrian-Jewish music theorist Heinrich Schenker against charges of “white privilege” and “racism.” In spite of his cancellation, he continues teaching, publishing, and pursuing justice in the courts for violation of his academic freedom.
