November 2023 - Kate Hamori
Kate Hamori is a PhD student in musicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. She currently serves as the student member on the CMS Board of Directors and has been an active member of the Student Advisory Council since 2019. Kate holds master’s degrees in musicology and library science from Indiana University Bloomington. Her recent musicological work has focused on intersections of cultural trauma, girlhood, and sonic violence as mediated by popular music and sound on social media platforms. Her interests in music librarianship include ethical cataloging practices, library instruction, information literacy, and social media outreach. A pianist and soprano, Kate is an active choral singer and enjoys accompanying the occasional high school musical whenever the opportunity presents itself.
We recently had the opportunity to reach out to Kate Hamori to talk about her work with CMS, and we hope you enjoy reading her responses!
