The music in popular texts—whether a catchy television show theme or a masterful Blockbuster score—plays a critical role in moving the hearts of audiences. Such music is the context that locates a genre and the narrative tool that leads viewers through a work. Ms. DeGalan’s talk explores the contribution music makes to genre works.
Ms. DeGalan earned a Bachelor of Arts in Ethnomusicology and Jazz Studies at BGSU in December of 2016. She is presently completing a Masters of Arts in Popular Culture and authoring a thesis entitled: An Evolution of DC Comics’ Superhero Soundtracks in Correlation to Major Historical Events in Conjunction with Changing Cultural Perceptions of Heroes.
