Scope and Method of Digital Music Research

Since December 2022, I am an assistant professor^[“Juniorprofessor”, as it’s called in Germany.] for “Digital Music Philology and Music Theory” at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Würzburg. Maybe not on first glance, but after a little thought I am finding that “Digital Music Philology and Music Theory” actually quite well expresses my main research interests. However I do realize that it might sound somewhat cryptic. In this post I want to elaborate my understandung of the denomination of this professorship and outline how I want to fill the post with life regarding research and teaching in the coming years.
