Professional Information

Todd Borgerding holds degrees in musicology from the University of Minnesota and the University of Michigan, and returned to Colby in 2008 after being away for nearly a decade. A Renaissance specialist with a focus on music of the Iberian world, his books and articles address issues of religion, sexuality and rhetoric. He is editor of Gender, Sexuality, and Early Music (Routledge), and his articles appear in such journals as Musical Quarterly and, more recently, the collection Musical Childhoods and the Cultures of Youth (Wesleyan). His latest book, The Motet, Rhetoric and Religion in Renaissance Spain is forthcoming from the University of Rochester Press.
