Lee, SeungHee

SeungHee is a graduate student in Yonsei University. Her major is Historical musicology, but she is also interested in Aesthetics, Cultural history and Culture Studies. As a historical musicologist, she has concerned with Verdi’s opera in 19th century, but recently increase her interest to contemporary music and popular music which reflects today’s musical lives of people. She is basically interested in ‘theater and music’ including opera, musical, and film music. Her paper, ‘Rethinking Verdi’s Risorgimento Opera: beyond the gap between politico-cultural and musicological perspectives’ (2014) has been published in Yonsei Collection of Papers.

Her academical odyssey is multifarious. She majored in Viola in Anyang University, but as her father (Horn player) became a union head of Seoul philharmonic orchestra she could realized “real world”.  After she graduated the university, she worked at People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy(PSPD) and Gonggam Human Rights Law Foundation as an intern. These experiences led her to study. She studied Non Governmental Organization and Human Rights in Sungkonghoe University. By the study at this university, she could know her academic preference. She found she is historically and musically oriented. Recently, she is studying German to read German writer’s books (like Dahlhaus, Benjamin, Adorno…), and trying to develop her dissertation on Reception of Verdi opera in Korea.
