Dr. Tammy Kernodle, professor of musicology, is the keynote speaker.

Kernodle was the recipient of the 2018 Benjamin Harrison Medallion, one of the most significant recognitions Miami offers faculty for contributions attesting to qualities of teaching, research, and/or service.

Kernodle’s “ . . . work in the intersection of jazz, gospel and freedom songs, in the influence and impact of (particularly female) African-American musicians, the civil rights movement, and women’s studies is extraordinary and breathtaking in its scope,” said one nominator.

Kernodle is also serving a three-year term as president of the Society for American Music. In 2014, she was honored for her teaching with Miami’s Effective Educator Award.
