Lawrence Earp

Lawrence M. Earp has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1984. He received his Bachelor of Music, concentrating in bassoon, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1974, his Master of Fine Arts at Princeton University in 1976, and his Ph.D. at Princeton in 1983, with a dissertation on the manuscripts of the fourteenth-century French composer Guillaume de Machaut. He has received research and travel grants from the French government (Centre National des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scholaires), the American Philosophical Society, the American Council of Learned Societies, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Institute for Research in the Humanities and Graduate School Research Committee at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prof. Earp’s research and publications have focused on late medieval music and its reception, and on nineteenth-century topics, though he has taught courses that range across the entire history of Western music. His research has appeared in the Journal of the American Musicological Society, Musica disciplina, Early Music, Beethoven Forum, and in books published by the University of Texas Press (The Union of Words and Music in Medieval Poetry, ed. Rebecca A. Baltzer, Thomas Cable, and James I. Wimsatt, 1991) and Garland (Guillaume de Machaut: A Guide to Research, 1995; and Medieval France: An Encyclopedia, ed. William W. Kibler, Grover A. Zinn, Lawrence Earp, and John Bell Henneman, Jr., 1995).
