    Building a Vocology Research Program in a College of Fine Arts

    With Ingo Titze and Lynn Maxfield, Moderated by Matt Hoch and Reena Gupta 

    December 9, 9:00 PM Eastern

    In many institutions, cross-departmental and cross-college programs are encouraged. Vocology, a natural convergence of multiple disciplines, should be perfectly suited to meet these cross-disciplinary desires. In this talk, we will discuss our experience of integrating a vocology research and education program into the College of Fine Arts at the University of Utah. We will touch on topics ranging from navigating administrative realities to identifying and obtaining buy-in from stakeholders across the University.


    Ingo R. Titze is a vocologist with formal education in physics (PhD), electrical engineering (MSEE), and music. He has directed the National Center for Voice and Speech for 31 years. He is an Emeritus Distinguished Professor at the University of Iowa and currently holds adjunct appointments in surgery, music, and biomedical engineering at the University of Utah. He is a Fellow and Honoree of the American Speech Language Association and a Silver Medalist of the Acoustical Society of America. The Voice Foundation has named the Sundberg-Titze award in his honor. Dr. Titze has authored four books, edited three books, and published over 450 journal articles. He continues to be an active singer. 

    Lynn Maxfield, PhD, is Director of the Utah Center for Vocology and assistant professor (lecturer) at the University of Utah’s School of Music. He also serves as the contracted voice Coach at the Utah of Utah Voice Disorders Center and is the Associate Editor of the Mindful Voice column of the NATS Journal of Singing. He holds a PhD in Voice Pedagogy and an MA in Voice Performance, both from the University of Iowa.  Prior to joining the University of Utah, he taught voice and voice pedagogy at Eastern Connecticut State University, Monmouth College, and Knox College, as well as music theory and ear training at Carl Sandburg College.
