The University of Toronto has named Dr. Ellie Hisama as Dean of the Faculty of Music. We learn from the Ludwig-van site that ‘her research focus centres on interdisciplinary studies, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and the social and political dimensions of music’. Nothing to do with improving and deepening the study of music.
‘As dean, I look forward to opening and leading conversations about how students, staff, faculty, alumni and administrators can work together towards greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Faculty of Music,’ she said. Yeah, right.
