Alexandra Huang is an early-career scholar working at the crossover of music and literature, with a recently awarded PhD exploring the intersection of piano playing and novel writing. Her work is informed by her literature education and practical experience as a music performer. Her research interests encompass comparative literature, musicology, opera studies, intermediality, and digital humanities. She is adept at employing artistic practice, primarily through interdisciplinary music performance, as a means of critical exploration and intervention. She is currently working on completing her first academic book, entitled Musical Performativity of Twentieth-Century Piano Novels, which investigates a global corpus of literary novels about piano performance in various modern languages. Concurrently, she is organising a series of experimental performance events based on the book’s focalised pianistic settings, transmitting the impact of her research writing through embodied artistic action.
