Imani Mosley

Imani Mosley received her PhD from Duke University in 2019 where her work examined the reception of Benjamin Britten’s postwar operas. Her current research addresses digital sonic mapping, acoustics, and ritual in the English churches and cathedrals central to Britten’s sacred music.

In addition to her work on Britten, she also specializes in contemporary opera, reception history, and masculinities studies. Her contribution to the digital humanities focuses on sonic mapping, data analysis, and digital and computational musicology.

Imani is also an active performer, playing new music written for bassoon and baroque bassoon in various early-music ensembles. She is also a working dramaturg and librettist and collaborated with composer Frances Pollock on the opera Stinney: an American Execution which had its premiere at the Prototype Festival in New York in 2019.
