Jason R. D’Aoust

I am comparativist with interests in music and media. I studied vocal performance at the Conservatoire de Musique du Québec à Montréal before completing degrees in English, Comparative Literature, and Theory & Criticism. My work broadly focuses on voices in literature and opera.

My research has been published in journals of literary criticism, musicology, film studies, and aesthetics. Forthcoming publications include a chapter on posthumanism in literature and opera in The Oxford Handbook of Sound and Imagination. I am also guest-editing a journal issue on vocal remediation and embodiment in opera.

Before moving to Oberlin, I was a guest researcher in Comparative Literature and at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry at Utrecht University.
