Bio/Research

James Wright completed a Ph.D. at McGill University in 2002. His dissertation on Schoenberg and Wittgenstein was awarded the Governor-General's Gold Medal, the first time in McGill University's history that this distinction has been conferred upon a musicologist. Dr. Wright's primary research areas encompass music philosophy and aesthetics, music perception, 20th-century music history, post-tonal music theory and analysis, dance and music, and the history of music theory. He is also known as a composer of numerous published choral works. In 2005, his first book, titled Schoenberg, Wittgenstein, and the Vienna Circle (now in 2nd edition), was published by Verlag Peter Lang of Switzerland. In 2006 the book received a Lewis Lockwood Award, presented annually by the American Musicological Society for outstanding new books on musicological topics.
