Jan Koplow



I'm a first year Ph.D. student in Ethnomusicology and I've earned a Bachelor's degree in Music with a major in Music Theory and Literature at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
My research interests span historical musicology, ethnomusicology, ecomusicology, and popular music studies.
In recent times, my research has focused on Metal music in Chile and I've studied the relationship between its practice and the situation of the indigenous cultures Mapuche, Selk'nam, and Kawésqar, and the positioning of bands towards the ecological crises and the dynamics of extractivism in the country.
