Professor, Music History

Dr. Alice Clark is a professor of music history and an active faculty member within Loyola's School of Music. Her scholarship focuses on late-medieval music, especially aspects of the motet in fourteenth-century France, and her work in that area has appeared in journals such as Plainsong and Medieval Music and the Journal of Musicology, as well as various essay collections. Dr. Clark has also presented papers at various conferences, including the American Musicological Society, the International Musicological Society, the International Medieval Society (Paris), the International Symposium on Late Medieval and Early Renaissance Music (Novacella, Italy), among others.

Dr. Clark has served as a member of the American Musicological Society Council, and is a former president of the International Machaut Society. Her performance experience has included work with members of Pomerium and with early music ensembles at the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute, Ohio State University, Princeton University, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Prior to joining Loyola University New Orleans in 2000, Dr. Clark taught at the University of Notre Dame, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. At Loyola, she teaches mostly courses for music majors, including a survey of western art music from antiquity through the baroque era and an annual seminar on opera, with topics ranging from the works of Mozart to Shakespeare and opera. She also regularly teaches a course on the twelfth-century abbess and visionary Hildegard of Bingen, her works, and her world as part of the Loyola Core, and is planning a future course on issues of gender, race, and class as expressed in opera.
