Elizabeth Randell Upton
Associate Professor of Musicology and Humanities , Musicology

Elizabeth Randell Upton’s research focuses on European vocal music pre-1600, medievalism in music, and early music revivals. Her first book, Music and Performance in the Later Middle Ages (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), examines how surviving European music ca. 1400 preserves evidence of the experiences of performers and listeners as well as the work of composers. Her work on intersections between early music and popular music has been published in American Music, postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies, The Oxford Handbook of Music and Medievalism (Oxford University Press, 2020), and Sounding Out!. Other publications include book chapters on avoiding the Uncanny Valley in Walt Disney’s Snow White (1937), and investigating a motet that Josquin Des Pres may have written for Lucrezia Borgia while in Ferrara.  At UCLA, Professor Upton teaches graduate and undergraduate classes in Musicology, as well as a GE class on the Beatles.
